Grace College students return to class for 2021-22 school year
KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. – Students at Grace College are returning to the classroom this week, and this school year will look a little different than last.
The college said things will be more normal this fall as COVID precautions are lifted across campus.
Social distancing is no longer required in Grace classrooms and masks and vaccinations are both optional.
The college is, however, keeping some safety measures around, and is encouraging students and staff to do what they can to keep each other safe.
“We are excited to have in person classes and other events in person as well but we also want to ensure we are being safe encouraging students to wash hands and sanitize their spaces and dorm rooms,” said Drew Flamm, Executive Vice President of Advancement. “We put up tents around campus so professors and events can be held outside. We also are encouraging faculty and staff to consider vaccines.”
Grace College has established a designated quarantine space should COVID cases appear on campus this school year.
The school will also maintain contact tracing to reduce the spread of the virus.
