FIU spring semester to offer more in-person classes (includes video story)

As the fall semester closed, schools began transitioning to a different style for the spring. They have carefully followed CDC guidelines to ensure a safe and smooth transition for people to return to the university and done their best to accommodate everyone in this difficult situation. 

Both students and faculty have been affected as schools have limited the number of people allowed on campus. This led many students to stay at home instead of going back to school.

While this has been tough for students, faculty members have worked tirelessly to find the best way to ensure safety for those still going to the university. 

FIU Provost Kenneth Furton said that the university will be offering more in-person classes but will still enforce social distancing on campus. The number of in-person classes is still low compared to what it used to be, but this is a step forward. The university will look to build from there.
