Cover picture for the articleIthaca College will be holding classes remotely for Fall 2020, a change from its initial plans for in-person instruction. In an email sent to the college community Aug. 18, President Shirley M. Collado said that she and the Senior Leadership Team made the decision based on the continuing severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. The email stated that the necessary modifications, including facilities preparedness and population density, would alter the on-campus experience in a way that the administration would not want students to have. Additionally, Collado said that it is likely that the college would have had to close at some point during the semester, a situation that would have caused a disruption of the academic experience.
