Hampton U. to Follow Online Format in the Fall

Hampton University President William Harvey announced his school will follow a remote-classes format this fall after initially aiming to reopen amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, saying the situation “has changed drastically.”

“Among those states that have reported significant increases, 6 of the top 10 states are those where Hampton University students reside,” Harvey said in a July 1 letter to the school’s community. “These states include California, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas. The other 4 states from our top 10 feeders are New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. Experts are predicting that cases will continue to rise, and many states are beginning to revise their reopening plans and implement additional restrictions. These statistics have caused us great concern.”

New student orientation for fall 2020 will take place virtually during the coming weeks, Harvey said.
