Which colleges say they’ll reopen in the fall? And which ones are keeping classes online?
Share Now on:
Colleges and universities are starting to reveal what they’re doing with the fall semester, whether students will be heading back to campus or staying home with online classes.
Location is a big factor. Notre Dame for example, is located in Indiana, which is reopening.
New York University, spread across parts of that hot spot known as Manhattan, plans to reopen, although New York City has not even reopened yet.
NYU is talking about reducing density in student housing, and enforcing social distancing, as well as virus and antibody testing.
Academic schedules will also see changes. Notre Dame, for example, will begin classes two weeks early, so students can be done with the first semester by Thanksgiving, and not have to leave and then return to campus.
A key question in all of this: Will students, parents, professors and staff want to do this?
