Greensboro College to end fall semester early amid virus

June 02, 2020 - 7:26 AM

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Greensboro College in North Carolina will end its fall semester before Thanksgiving in order to reduce the number of trips students make during the coronavirus outbreak, the school’s president said.

The semester will end Nov. 24, two days before Thanksgiving, and final exams will be held online during the first week of December, the private liberal arts college announced Monday in a news release.

Students will have classes on other days, including Labor Day, and fall break will be cancelled to make up for the early fall dismissal, the school said. The spring schedule will remain as before.

The college also announced it has resumed “limited” in-person campus tours for prospective students and their families. Visitors to the school must answer health screening questions and wear masks, the school said.
