COVID-19 AND THE COLLEGE SCENE

This is a special page recognizing the unusual nature of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on colleges and universities right now. These articles are a hopefully representative selection of information in the media about how Covid-19 may continue to affect the college experience and people’s thoughts about its value. If you are planning to attend a college, don’t depend on this section for news. Go to the school’s website and you should be able to learn a little about what the administration is thinking there. 


As colleges’ responses to Covid-19 are rapidly evolving, some of the articles I’ve posted may not be current, including news about schools. Again, follow their websites and social media to find out the latest updates. This section is meant to give a sense of what schools, sports leagues, and the governments that set policy for many colleges are thinking and how their responses may affect your college experiences, and whether, for example, you may need to be vaccinated against Covid-19 and/or its various variants in order to attend colleges you are considering.


 The articles are posted in reverse chronological order so the most recent ones will be the most current on thinking on the campuses and in the systems/leagues described in those stories. If it seems relevant, please read the whole story, not just the headline, as the meat of the responses of policy makers can’t be presented in a few words. 

Please note: None of the articles on the Coronavirus page are authored by me. All are by others. I have included the publishing source and date in the entries, authors are, of course, listed by their publishers on the websites to which these links should take you.

 

Note: If links on this page are broken, please let me know via my contact page. I’ll check them and make sure they are removed or changed if needed. Sometimes a different browser or machine (phone vs. computer, for example) will lead to different results. If links really don’t work, try searching for articles you want to read using the reference info here. Links may change but references usually don’t. I have authored none of the articles in this collection. As I state above, I have collected them so people can get a sense for how Covid-19 continues to affect US colleges and their students. Please read all articles thoroughly as headlines may not fully describe story details.
