More colleges and universities are canceling plans for an in-person fall semester as COVID-19 cases spike nationwide.
Occidental College, Dickinson College, Rhodes College, East Stroudsburg University, West Chester University and Loyola University Chicago are the latest to alter plans and reduce the number of in-person classes. Earlier this month, Pomona College and the University of Southern California similarly changed in-person fall semester plans. The California State University system was one of the first to announce classes will be mainly online this coming fall.
