An order from Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf requiring the closure of all non-life sustaining businesses by 8:00 p.m. Thursday will require Gettysburg College to close. Students will no longer be able to return to campus to retrieve belongings, an email from Dean of Students Julie Ramsey said.
Previously, the college had planned to be open through Saturday at 8:00 p.m. for students to move out of their rooms and would work to ship boxes to students who could not return.
Students approved to continue to live on campus will still be able to do so, college spokesperson Jamie Yates said.
