UT System promises a “normal” student experience for fall

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WDEF) – The head of the UT System tried to reassure potential students for next fall.

President Randy Boyd announced that University of Tennessee campuses will provide a traditional college experience for the new year.

As a result, UTC is planning for the Fall 2021 semester to include normal, in-person, face-to-face instruction.

Officials also promise student activities similar to pre-Covid-19 levels and the resumption of traditional campus experiences “to the extent possible.”

Of course, they will continue to monitor vaccine availability and new cases into the new year.

“Our campus has made incredible progress in learning how to best manage the risks of COVID-19, and we have reason for confidence that we can safely return to a traditional, face-to-face format for instruction.”
