Loyola wants on-campus classes this fall

Loyola University in New Orleans plans on having students back on campus this fall, in the classrooms for the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year.

WWL-TV reports an email to incoming students from university president Tania Tetlow said there would, however, be several adjustments due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

She said student housing would include frequent cleaning, and would be prioritized for first and second-year students. Students are likely to be singled up in rooms, and only larger rooms would have students doubled.

Tetlow said there would be no large lecture classes, and smaller classes will move into larger rooms. Some courses may be split in two with students attending class in shifts.

She also said that in-person classes would end at Thanksgiving break, and students would finish the semester and complete their finals online.
