First Week of Classes Move Online

Montana Farner, News Editor

Students will be back to online classes only – at least for the first week of the semester.

Bloomsburg University announced the move to online learning for the first week of the semester in wake of the Omicron variant. 

Classes will be delivered online to students from January 24-28th. 

The announcement came from an email sent to BU students from Bloomsburg University President Bashar Hanna. 

Students are expected to continue in-person classes starting on January 31st, according to the email. 

The move to online allows time for “robust testing protocol and staggered move-in schedule for residential students returning to campus.”

Students are expected to receive communication from Student Success and Campus Life with more detailed testing instructions later this week, as stated in the email. 

The Voice will be continuing to update this story as further details come out.
