Officials at the University of Oklahoma announced on Wednesday that they are taking additional measures to protect the students and staff members, according to KFOR. All classes for the remainder of the spring semester will transition to online courses.
” We are actively exploring ways we can honor our graduates and their achievements at an appropriate time. This will likely look very different, perhaps even virtual, with an opportunity to participate in an in-person ceremony when it is safe to do so. We hope to reschedule these events for later in the summer, and we will communicate updates as we have them,” a note from Interim OU President Joseph Harroz, Jr. read.
“Certainly, students who have no other housing option will remain in on-campus housing, and we are committed to assisting all residents, including our international student community, in every possible way. On-campus housing residents can expect to receive specific information from OU Housing in the coming days. Regrettably, the rapid pace of this unfolding crisis does not allow us to have the answers for all questions at this time. We will, however, address all questions as quickly as is possible,” according to the notice.
