Trine University in Angola says it will bring students, faculty and staff back to normal campus operations in August. President Earl Brooks says the move means fully-seated, in-person classes and full resumption of student activities and athletic events.
“We intend to return to the Trine University that existed before the pandemic,” said Brooks.
Brooks says COVID-19 positivity rates on campus have remained at or below 1% throughout the spring semester, with more than 6,000 tests being conducted since mid-January.
“We will be prepared to make any modifications required to ensure the safety of the entire campus community,” Brooks said. “However, with the success and distribution of vaccines, the continued lowering of infection rates throughout Indiana and the dedication of Trine students and staff, we are fully comfortable that we can now plan for the best and adjust if we must.”
