Less than a month after moving-in, some UW-Madison students are heading back home.
The university on Friday said some students are leaving ahead of a two-week shift to online classes. UW-Madison is all but ordering undergrad students to stay in their dorms or apartments, and has moved classes online for the next two weeks because of the coronavirus. Student Lauren Tamborino said she went back home to avoid the chaos and ever-changing rules on campus. She’s not saying when, or if, she’ll go back.
Campus at UW-La Crosse will largely be a ghost town for the next two weeks.
The university yesterday canceled all in-person classes for two weeks. In addition to the move to online-only classes, UW-La Crosse is telling students to stay in their dorms for the next two weeks as well. La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow says he made the decisions to try and halt the spread of the coronavirus, though he is not saying how many students have tested positive for the virus.
