Thomas University extends spring break, moves in-person classes onlinePost Published On:
Today Thomas University administrators announced that spring break, which was originally scheduled for March 9-13, will be extended by one week. Classes will resume on Monday, March 23, and all in-person classes will transition to an online format.
“While no cases of COVID-19 have been reported at Thomas University or in the city of Thomasville, we feel it is necessary to protect our students and employees from the threat of this corona virus,” said Dr. Andy Sheppard, TU President. “The safety of our university family is of the utmost importance.”
Residence halls, dining facilities and other campus services will remain open. However, students are encouraged to move home or live off campus if they are able to do so. Students who traveled overseas during spring break are required to notify the Office of Student Life about their travel.
Athletic competitions will continue. These games will also be video streamed. Links for the streaming are available on the TU Athletics website, www.tunighthawks.com.
Until further notice, all non-athletic events – both those sponsored by TU and those held by third parties on TU’s campus – are suspended. For questions related to external events, please contact Kurt Stringfellow, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Administrative offices will be open, but employees will be working remotely and can be reached by email.
