Hope everyone has maneuvered successfully through mid-terms and are ready for the stretch run of the Fall semester. Our continued thanks for your hard work and perseverance during these challenging times.
As you’re aware, the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be on the rise again. While much uncertainty remains, health experts are warning that the virus could worsen as the Fall turns to Winter.
As a result, we are announcing today that YSU will conduct courses in the Spring semester under the same five instructional modalities as this current Fall semester. This will allow us to limit the number of students on campus, provide appropriate social distancing and minimize risk, all while continuing to offer quality instruction.
Registration for Spring semester classes begins this week. As with the Fall semester, the instructional method for each class is listed within the schedule of classes. Questions? Call the Penguin Service Center at 330-941-6000.
While the instructional modalities have worked well, we know that nothing beats face-to-face classroom engagement. With improving prospects for a vaccine, we’re hopeful that we can begin to return to a regular, “normal” mode of instruction later in 2021.
Meanwhile, keep up the good work following campus protocols – wear a mask, wash your hands and keep your distance.
Be safe, and Go Penguins!
