After over a year of limited capacity, online classes and social distancing, LSU is hoping to head back to pre-pandemic normal in the fall.
In a February email to all LSU students, the Division of Strategic Communications stated that it expects most of the fall 2021 courses to be delivered in-person and for the majority of campus operations to be back to normal if the vaccinations proceed as expected.
LSU Interim President Tom Galligan said he hopes things at LSU will return back to the way they were in the fall of 2019-- no plexiglass or computer screens between professors and students. Masks may still need to be worn depending on the CDC’s recommendation.
“I’m hoping that we are back in class and that we’re face to face,” said Galligan. “We are looking forward to going back to person-to-person classes.”
President Galligan said the key to returning back to normal in the fall is to get vaccinated. More than 10,000 people have been vaccinated in the LSU community and he is encouraging as many people to get vaccinated as possible before the fall.
