Bethel University has announced its plans for the upcoming fall semester in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
For traditional students, the 2020 Fall Semester will begin two days early, on August 18, and will run, without any breaks, until Thanksgiving break.
Classes will be held on Labor day, there will not be a fall break and the final exam schedule will be modified. The University also reports there will be modified class breaks for Spiritual Emphases Week services.
Campus leaders are also making other modifications, and preparations, ahead of the upcoming semester. This includes installing live-stream technology in many classrooms, so that in case of quarantine, students can keep up-to-date on school work. Several housing locations are being prepped for potential quarantine lodging, and mental health counseling will be offered to ease student anxiety.
