UW-Superior Plans To Resume Some On-Campus Classes For Fall Semester
The academic year for 2020 students came to an abrupt halt all over the country due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and local colleges like UW-Superior had to resort to all online classes to finish the Spring semester. But according to a press release from the school the University of Wisconsin-Superior currently plans to resume some on-campus classes for the fall 2020 semester. This includes bringing students and employees back to campus.
Renée Wachter, UW-Superior chancellor stated in a press release "The UW-Superior Recovery Team has been hard at work on the plan to bring students and employees back to campus. It is cautious and phased in its approach. Details of the plan are being finalized and will be shared soon.”
Along with some on campus classes, UW-Superior also plans on hosting athletic teams and competitions. Students will also be living on campus in residence halls and the school will be providing on campus activities and support services.
The university is anticipating a mix of on-campus and online classes as social distancing requirements will determine how campus space can be conducted safely. According to the press release Wachter went on to say " Campus has been very quiet since classes were converted to remote learning in March. I know I’m not alone in looking forward to seeing our campus vibrant and active again. We are committed to doing all we can to keep campus safe for students, employees and guests of our small but mighty university.”
I know that when I was in college campus life is a big part of your life as a student and it is nice to see some sort of normalcy returning. I am sure many more colleges and universities will be announcing similar measures in order to get staff and students back into a routine.
