On July 8th you received a welcome message with information about moving into Greek Village at NC State. Based on updated CDC guidance, the university has adjusted its move-in testing requirements:
Students living in on-campus housing (including Greek Village) who have NOT provided proof of vaccination will be required to provide results from a PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours before or after their move-in appointment. All tests off campus must be uploaded into the HealthyPack Portal. If you are tested on campus, you do not need to upload your results. Last spring, we found getting tested on campus was the most efficient way to be cleared, but encourage you to choose the option you are most comfortable with.
In addition to move-in testing, students living in on-campus housing (including Greek Village) who have not provided proof of vaccination, or decided not to disclose vaccination status, will be required to participate in weekly surveillance testing on campus.
Vaccination records should be uploaded into the HealthyPack Portal. However, if you received your vaccine on campus, you do not need to upload your records. If you would like to schedule an appointment to get vaccinated, you can do so here. The clinic is running all summer and fall in Student Health Services.
Students living on campus who have provided proof of vaccination will NOT be required to provide a COVID-19 test result at move-in, and are exempt from weekly testing requirements.
On-campus testing will also remain available for the NC State community throughout the fall. COVID-19 tests on campus are free and available to all NC State students, faculty and staff. For more information on testing locations and hours, please click here.
Because sorority move-in is prior to move-in for the residence halls, and because testing sites are not open during the weekend, we are working to set up a temporary testing site in Greek Village to provide convenient access to testing on Monday, August 9th. Working with Panhellenic toward their goal of in-person recruitment, we have made special arrangements for ALL members of the Panhellenic Community to have access to testing in Greek Village as work week kicks off. We invite all sorority women, regardless of vaccination status or residence in the village, to participate.
- Participation will satisfy the move in testing requirement for all residents and help keep us on the path toward in-person recruitment.
- We know that work week is a special time. For many of you it will be the first time you all gather in the chapter house with all of your sisters in more than a year, or maybe ever. Let’s start the year off strong by knowing we are taking care of ourselves and our sisters!
- Testing helps identify unknown cases so that measures can be taken to prevent further transmission. Regular testing of our members is one tool in our kit to help us achieve the goal of in-person recruitment this fall. With rising cases, let’s take every precaution to be the best example of what it means to Protect the Pack!
- Construction impacts are real! We encourage chapter members to walk as much as possible between their house and the testing location to avoid construction impacts. Please reference the map for driving directions to House 3 (Delta Sigma Phi – 2511 Fraternity Court). For those walking, you can take the sidewalk next to Lambda Chi around to the back or take the sidewalk between Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma’s “new” house and walk along Fraternity Court to the testing site.
- Don’t forget to bring your STUDENT ID.
- The Fraternity/Sorority Community was by far the best group of testers on campus last spring which helped keep our Village residents and campus less than 2% positive. Far cry from the ~70% positive last fall in the village (yikes). While vaccines certainly helped those spring numbers, our community didn’t have access to the vaccine until late in the semester. Testing made a huge difference. Now we are seeing the impact of vaccines on transmission (94% of covid cases are unvaccinated individuals). So let’s do this! Get vaccinated. Get tested.
|8:00 AM||Alpha Delta Pi||11:00 AM||Kappa Delta|
|8:30 AM||Panhellenic Exec and SRCs||11:45 AM||Kappa Kappa Gamma|
|8:45 AM||Delta Gamma||1:15 PM||Pi Beta Phi|
|9:30 AM||Delta Zeta||2:00 PM||Sigma Kappa|
|10:15 AM||Kappa Alpha Theta||2:45 PM||Zeta Tau Alpha|
|3:30 PM||Chi Omega|
For our fraternity men, other on-campus testing will be ramping up during your move in dates as they coincide with University Housing move in. We encourage you and hope you will encourage all out-of-house brothers to participate in surveillance testing, especially if unvaccinated. As you open your homes to brothers for dining, recruitment, and brotherhood events, regular testing can help keep transmission low. FSL really appreciated chapters showing up in mass before chapter events in the spring, and know that measure went a long way to keeping transmission low in our community. Last fall was rough. Let’s not do that again. We have tools to help us and should use them. Get vaccinated. Get tested. For more information on testing locations and hours, please click here.
The BEST way to keep yourself, your new neighbors and our entire Wolfpack safe and healthy, is to get your COVID-19 vaccine. Student Health Services offers COVID-19 vaccination appointments through the PackVax clinic. The clinic is open all summer and fall in Student Health Services. Vaccination appointments are available for anyone 12 years and older.
Additionally, remember move-in to your fall assignment is by appointment only, available in thirty minute slots between 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. (the last appointment slot starts at 7:30 p.m.) each day. Sororities will move in from August 7-8 and fraternities from August 13-15. If you haven’t already, please sign up by following the steps below.
- Log into MyPack Portal and go to the Housing Portal.
- Select Manage My Housing, located in the red navigation bar.
- Select Fall Check-in Appointments.
- Select the Save and Continue button.
- Choose your move-in appointment; confirm it; you will receive confirmation sent to your ncsu.edu email address.
We look forward to seeing you on campus soon. Thank you for doing your part to protect the Pack.
