Over 70% of the classes are completely virtual. While the format is different, faculty and staff spent the summer adapting their material and approach so that students continue to receive a top class education.
The classes that do require in-person hands-on instruction are being held with new safety standards. Barriers have been installed when appropriate and classrooms have been reconfigured to allow for safe distancing. We have strict health and safety standards for anyone on campus. No one is allowed on campus without a specific purpose and authorization. They must complete a COVID-19 screening before entering campus and masks are required inside. Exercise facilities have been restricted to student athletes who are conditioning. No outside groups are currently allowed on campus.
