Michigan State: Fall term to mix in-person, online classes
Michigan State University says it will start the fall term on Sept. 2 with a mix of in-person and online classes. President Samuel Stanley Jr. said Wednesday that the fall term "will look different from any previous semester." Stanley posted a letter on MSU's website and invited students to a webcast to answer questions Friday night. Stanley says physical distancing and face coverings to reduce the risk of the coronavirus will be essential. In-person classes will end at Thanksgiving, followed by three weeks of remote instruction and final exams. Meanwhile, coronavirus cases rose statewide on Wednesday by about 1%, to more than 55,600 since March.
