From a more detailed explanation of Washington University’s lack of a booster requirement to an overview of the services available on campus during the first two weeks of class, here are answers to some of the most important questions facing the university community as the semester gets underway.
After Washington University’s Nov. 18 announcement that spring 2021 classes will continue to follow a hybrid format, students studying remotely this fall must decide whether or not to come to campus in the spring.
While other schools at Washington University have chosen to continue hybrid learning after Thanksgiving, the Brown School has a number of advantages which allowed it to make the transition to fully online learning.
Undergraduate students who travel more than 60 miles outside of the St. Louis region for Thanksgiving will not be allowed to return to campus for the remainder of the semester, according to a Nov. 12 email from Chancellor Andrew Martin and Provost Beverly Wendland.
Professors across Washington University were required to declare by Nov. 6 whether they will conduct their classes online, hybrid or in-person for the spring 2021 semester.
For some courses there is more flexibility, for others there are more assignments. But for everyone, there is some form of virtual learning, and with that comes the dreaded “Zoom fatigue.”
While classes are ramping up after a whirlwind first week, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced faculty and students alike to be flexible and cautious in order to stay safe.
The combination of a loss of structure and complete social isolation have caused serious depressive effects for many.
Students no longer need to study abroad to benefit from the unique offerings of schools far from the landlocked state of Missouri.
