Fall Quarter at Ohio University Info
After the whole world changed this spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio University is now planning for fall quarter classes. Like most colleges and universities, Ohio University closed its campuses in the spring due to the global health pandemic. Ohio University housing closed its residence halls, except for those who had to remain in Athens.
Many students living off-campus also left Athens, although some chose to remain in their Athens rentals. The university closed its classrooms and laboratories, and the city emptied out and became much quieter.
While nothing has been decided for sure yet, Ohio University looks likely to hold fall classes in person. The university sent out a news release in May stating that it hopes to open its campuses in the fall. The release states that the university hopes to return to in-person instruction, if it is safe to do so.
The university is working with state leaders and public health officials to discuss several scenarios to open. This could mean opening for full classes at the beginning of the semester. This would mean that Ohio University housing would also open as originally scheduled, with some full classes and online classes being held right away. State leaders will provide input on the university’s decision
The good news is that the state has been moving to carefully reopen more and more businesses and organizations. Hopefully, those openings will continue to expand safely. State leaders and public health experts will be closely studying the impact of opening businesses and organizations. While nothing has been decided, university leaders hope the institution will open for the beginning of the semester. They stress, though, that they will follow the guidance of the state and public health officials.
This historic time has meant big changes for Ohio University and Athens. And we know it has impacted everyone who is paying Ohio rent to live in Athens, too. Many students who live in off-campus housing want to know if there will be in-person classes in Athens. Many also want to know about jobs that will be available on and off campus. In addition, everyone is waiting to find out what daily life will be like in Athens in the fall. Most importantly, everyone wants to remain safe, no matter where they are living.
