Classes resuming at Michigan State University following mass shooting on campus
Classes are resuming today at Michigan State University where a gunman killed three students and hospitalized five less than a week ago. The university is making accommodations to support community members
Officials with MSU say they’re offering free counseling resources to all students and staff and increasing the presence of police officers on campus.
Interim Provost Thomas Jeitschko says resuming a social routine will be beneficial to students and instructors. But he acknowledges coming back to class will be difficult.
“I'd like to emphasize that no one thinks that we're coming back to a normal week. In fact, this semester is not going to be normal.”
MSU is covering funeral and medical costs for the victims of the shooting. Of the five hospitalized students, three remain in critical condition, one is stable and one is in fair condition.
