Sarah Carlon- Breaking news for the morning of Monday, October 19th. All spring 2021 classes, graduate and undergraduate will be online, according to an email to the Simmons community this morning. Administration has not made a decision whether they will allow more students to live on campus. 

The email reads “for the spring semester all courses, undergraduate and graduate will be offered online. We are taking this proactive step to prepare for the worst case, and to ensure the least amount of disruption to our students and faculty should the pandemic continue to get worse. While we are not yet ready to make a decision about the return to campus, rest assured that we are working hard to make the most responsible and safe decision possible.”
