Spring semester delayed by three weeks in Roanoke College

Roanoke, Virginia – It may take a while before college students return to Salem.

The Spring 2021 semester will begin on February 8, rather than January 19, Roanoke College announced.

With this change, the semester is delayed for 20 days.

The decision was made due to the combined effect of a predicted Covid-19 case increase and the need to restore the current campus network, President Michael Maxey stated.

The length of the semester will remain unchanged, so the final week of classes will now start on May 17, with the Class of 2021 commencement ceremony on May 29.

As a college student, making an extra buck now and then was very important. I started as a part-time reporter since I was 19 yo, and I couldn’t believe it might become a long-time career. I'm happy to be part of the Virginian Tribune's team.
