Purdue reveals preliminary plans for 2020 fall semester
Purdue University is one of many schools across the country that has the intention of re-opening its campus to host in-person classes for the fall 2020 semester. University president Mitch Daniels was one of the first to announce that the plan was to allow students back on campus for face-to-face instruction.
Recently, the school has released a plan on what that format may look like come August.
According to a report from the Journal & Courier, Purdue’s fall classes are expected to begin on Aug. 24 and will run through Nov. 24, which would be the school’s Thanksgiving break. After the holiday recess, the university will not host face-to-face classes through finals week, which would end on Dec. 12.
Campus will not close after Thanksgiving break, as residence halls and the like will remain open. However, there will not be any face-to-face instruction following the break.
Those updates were provided by Purdue University Provost Jay Akridge.
According to Akridge, Purdue University’s athletics programs will ”continue to follow conference and NCAA guidance.”
