For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is planning to return to a more familiar, engaging campus experience this fall.
“We are excited to welcome you in fall to the campus experience you expect: One that is engaging in and out of the classroom. One that helps you learn and grow in many ways. One we all crave,” Chancellor Thomas Gibson told students and employees.
A vast majority of courses will be held in person this fall.
“Faculty and academic support areas are planning for a full return to in-person teaching. They are working on fall schedules, which will be available in early March for students to register. UW-Stevens Point is committed to student success, which including in the course format that meets students’ comfort,” a UWSP release stated.
The school will also restore “a sense of community in residence halls, in-person student support services, in-person recreation and intramural sports schedule, in-person student organizations, activities and hanging out with friends.”
The school will also return fans to athletic competition and reinstate live entertainment, including music and theater.
“The health and safety of students, faculty, staff and communities will remain a top priority,” Gibson said. “A return to the full, familiar campus experience is possible only because of your continued vigilance. We hope we are turning a corner from the greatest crisis of our lifetime.”
While campuses and field stations remain closed to the public, it will be re-evaluated in March for summer and fall activities and community events. Prospective students are welcome to visit, and retail operations are open in the Dreyfus University Center.
