Shippensburg University announced it will be offering in-person experiences on campus for the fall 2021 semester.
Because of widespread vaccinations and safety mitigations lifting, SU is opening up the campus to students again, university officials said in a recent press release.
“New and returning Raiders can expect the full Ship experience,” the press release said.
Students can expect to be attending in-person classes with no social distancing, on-campus sorority and fraternity events, and in-person club meetings. Athletic games, tailgating and homecoming will be back during the fall semester, as well as performing arts events.
The press release said all on-campus dining options will be available.
Safety measures will still be in place, which may include face masks, testing, vaccinations and more. The university will follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Center for Disease Control guidelines.
“What our campus community accomplished in the last year is nothing short of extraordinary, and we’re excited to keep pushing forward and provide students with opportunities that look more like campus prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Tom Ormond, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said in the release.
Officials said more information will be available May 15.
