CHICAGO (AP) – Freshmen and sophomore students at Northwestern University cannot return to campus after all and will take classes remotely.
The Chicago Tribune reports that until Friday’s announcement, Northwestern University officials planned for students to return to campus. The university also is keeping fraternity and sorority houses shuttered during the fall semester.
Universities around the country have struggled with plans for the fall semester as the coronavirus continues to spread. Early outbreaks forced some schools’ administrators to cancel in-person classes temporarily or for the fall semester.
