When it comes to education, at both the collegiate level and otherwise, so much has changed. From Zoom classrooms, isolation in dorms, and spaced-out labs, Colorado State University has tried incredibly hard to keep their students' safety a priority.

However, now, it seems faculty wants to get back to "normal".

In a lengthy statement on the CSU website, President Joyce McConnell wrote:

All students coming to CSU campuses can feel confident that our classrooms are arranged according to physical distancing guidelines, with hygienic supply stations and posted public health protocols. This fall we will also continue our extremely successful messaging that Rams Take Care of Rams by observing and reinforcing all current Larimer County public health protocols.

She noted that students coming in had their last years of high school disrupted, but that their first years of college are sure to be everything they expected.

So how, exactly, is CSU planning on keeping their facilities safe? Not only will they have regular COVID-19 testing, but their Pandemic Preparedness Team on-site will help to direct their COVID response, track exposures, follow and carry out government health protocols, and keep as many healthy as they can.
