The end of summer is coming and it is back to school time for grade school through college. Many of the local school districts are going virtual to start the school year. Some of our colleges are doing both, some in person classes along with some virtual learning. Even though MSU and all the Big 10 colleges have cancelled their football for the fall, Michigan State University plans to do the hybrid system, a combination of in person and virtual.

Now students will have to make their own plans to stay safe while continuing their education. MSU has put a plan together to make it safe for all students. Daniel Isabella is heading back to MSU and thinks the University has been doing an excellent job planning to keep students safe. But he still feels anxious. MLive reports “I don’t necessarily trust that a lot of college students will follow them,” Isabella said of the mandates MSU is putting in place. “So, I’m going to be pretty apprehensive going forward. I’m really excited to be back, but I don’t know how any of it will work going forward and it’s all a big question mark to me.”

Michigan State University is requiring masks and social distancing, and is making testing available for students. There are changes on campus for returning students. MSU has chosen Akers Hall for isolation housing this fall. This facility does not have communal bathrooms, so students can easily keep their distance from others around them, and their meals will be delivered.
