What Will College Look Like in Fall?


Vince Smith

News that the University of Illinois System would be welcoming students this fall came in an announcement last week. Instruction will range from both a mix of in-person and online classes. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has also announced that they will be utilizing a saliva COVID-19 test on more than 50,000 students returning to campus. 

Despite the guidance provided about how the school year will look, many students, professors, and parents still have questions about how things will play out this fall.
