Three Local Private Colleges Working Toward In-Person Classes This Fall
Some California public colleges and universities have already announced that their courses will remain online for the fall semester, but a handful of private Southern California campuses say they're moving toward resuming in-person classes this fall.
Students at Chapman University in Orange and Pepperdine University in Malibu are working out plans to return to their classrooms, with safety measures in place.
“It’s not going to be a semester like every other, its going to be kind of the rebirth semester,” said Chapman University President Daniele Struppa. His university is going to sanitize classrooms, take students’ temperatures around campus, provide masks and gloves to everyone on campus and shrink classrooms and use outdoor spaces to carry out social distancing.
Similar plans are under consideration at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks but have not been made final.
The measures will be expensive and administrators say some students and employees won’t feel comfortable coming to campus even with all the planned precautions.
UPDATE, May 18, 4:15 p.m.: A previous version of this story included Cal Lutheran among the universities that will resume in-person classes this fall. Those plans are currently under consideration.
