TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana State University is among several local colleges starting classes this week.
ISU has announced a number of steps its taking to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. It includes indoor mask requirements, capacity limits for events and health assessments to help the university monitor any potential cases.
One student says she’s excited to be back on campus and says it’s important to keep a positive mindset during the pandemic.
“It is a little scary but I know that the school is taking the right precautions having us wear masks to class and having all the desks six feet apart. A lot of my classes are hybrid, so I’m only going to class one day a week and then the rest will be online, so that eliminates a lot of the risk involved in going to class,” says Josie Angel, a sophomore at ISU.
Other colleges starting classes this week including Vincennes University and saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.
