BJU’s highest priority is successful student learning in a healthy and safe environment. The University has provided a detailed yet general plan that will by necessity leave some questions and concerns unanswered.
The conditions that arise from the COVID-19 pandemic are regularly changing, and as a result, so are BJU’s responses. The administration will be constantly reviewing and adapting policies throughout the year and will provide regular updates on BJUtoday.

BJU Dining Services staff has modified hours, occupancy, seating arrangements, cleaning schedules, menus and more at its locations across campus to ensure the safety of guests.
