A Look at On-Campus Classes this Fall

Vol State faculty are getting ready for the fall semester with COVID-19 precautions. While most Vol State classes will have an online format this fall, some of the hands-on courses will still meet, but with new social distancing requirements. Health Sciences classes at the college are already meeting this way. This is a Radiologic Technology class. The students are learning CPR skills. The full class has been split up into three smaller groups, each meeting at a different time. That allows for social distancing in the classroom and room cleaning between groups. Masks are required at all times on campus, for everyone, including the faculty teaching the classes. The models that the Health Sciences classes are developing this summer will be used for all Vol State on-campus class meetings when the fall semester starts.
