What will school be like post-pandemic? I'm sure educators, administration, and students alike are all wondering what the future holds for in-person schooling. While summer may just be starting, schools are preparing for the 2020 fall semester. Are you curious about what the "new normal" will be like for on-campus higher education?

One Western North Dakota college is preparing to bring students and staff back to campus for the fall 2020 semester. According to KFYR-TV, Dickinson State University (DSU) will be resuming in-person classes come this fall. Though, they are making some changes in order to comply with social distancing.

KFYR-TV is reporting that "DSU administrators are preparing for a variety of possibilities to make sure they are equipped to handle any challenge COVID-19 may bring." The changes to classes and campus life may include holding class in larger rooms, reducing seating in the dining area, and wearing masks in classes where hands-on learning is necessary/ required. The news station also states that the cost of individual dorm rooms has been reduced, so more students will now have the option to have a single-person living space.

I'm not sure how drastically post-pandemic changes will all affect North Dakota schools. I mean, we've had to practice social distancing already and all that really seems different (to me) is that people wear masks and things close earlier than they used to. Sure, we had a bunch of closures and cancellations, but life has almost basically resumed. So, maybe implementing new procedures to schools won't seem so bad.
