Coronavirus Upends College: Students in Online Classes, No Graduation
In the span of roughly two weeks, the American higher education system has transformed. Its future is increasingly uncertain.
Most classes are now being held online, often for the rest of the semester. Dorms are emptying across the country. Some universities are even postponing or canceling graduation ceremonies scheduled months out. This is all the more surprising given most universities have a reputation for being reticent to change, especially in a short amount of time.
