Campbell to begin spring semester with remote learning

Posted

All Campbell programs remote through Jan. 19; first day of in-person learning scheduled for Jan. 20

Campbell University will begin the spring semester via remote learning, President J. Bradley Creed announced Tuesday, Jan. 4. The online/virtual classes will begin on the first scheduled day of classes for all undergraduate, graduate and professional programs and run through Jan. 19. The first day of in-person instruction is scheduled for Jan. 20.

Students should confirm with their program regarding the first day of scheduled classes.

The announcement comes as universities across the nation brace for the return of students after a month of rising COVID-19 cases due to the highly contagious omicron variant. Residential students may return to Campbell’s main campus in Buies Creek beginning Jan. 9.

Other guidelines and restrictions, courtesy of the Health & Safety Committee, are listed below:

  • All rooms will remain private rooms for students living in residence halls on campus during the spring semester. 
  • On-campus dining will offer take-out meal service (no dine-in) through Jan. 19.
  • The Oscar N. Harris Student Union will be closed to all student activities through Jan. 19.
  • Campbell Athletic events will be closed to all spectators through Jan. 19.
  • In-person student activities scheduled up to Jan. 19 need to be rescheduled or held virtually.
  • The University will host no large in-person gatherings on campus through Jan. 19.
  • The Admissions Office will offer daily virtual prospective student sessions now through Jan. 19 in place of in-person visits.  In person visits to campus are scheduled to resume on Jan. 20.
  • The Campbell campus will be closed to visitors — except those who are essential to the functions of the university — through Jan. 19.

The new guidelines are effective immediately, and the university’s Health and Safety Committee will revisit the restrictions as Jan. 19 approaches.
