COVID-19 Update from the President

By President Dondi Costin | February 17, 2021

The sun shines a bit brighter today, not just because of the large amount of rain we’ve seen here in recent days, but largely due to the decrease in COVID numbers on campus and off. Thank you for your continued commitment to our policies and procedures. This has helped significantly reduce the number of people in isolation and quarantine. I am grateful to God for each of you. We are making our way to the first of May and your choice to be BUCSAFE is leading the way! 

Our Numbers

Here are our numbers as of February 16, 2021: 

    Of these 10 students, 0 reside on campus, 10 reside off campus, and 9 are confirmed positive.
    Of these 22 students, 1 resides on campus, 21 reside off campus. 
  • TOTAL NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES IN ISOLATION: 4 (2 confirmed positive)

As a reminder, ISOLATION is reserved for actively symptomatic or known positive cases, and QUARANTINE is reserved for those who have been identified as a close contact of someone who is positive or who has symptoms. People in QUARANTINE are NOT ill – we are simply watching them to ensure they do not become symptomatic.

Student Life

Students enjoyed CSU Strike Night last Friday! Check out Facebook and Instagram for a few of the highlights. This was our first Sweet 16 event of the semester and we feel confident that, should COVID numbers remain low, we can continue to finalize plans for the remainder of the spring. You can find a complete list of Student Life events in the BUCNATION app. 


Remember, you can always reach out to the University Pandemic Task Force with questions or concerns. You can contact them directly by emailing This email address is monitored Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Any emails received after 5 p.m. on Friday will be addressed on Monday.    

Stay safe, stay focused, stay healthy, and stay faithful to the Lord and His provision as we work together to continue enjoying a healthy CSU! As always, let’s spread the Word, not the virus.
