COLUMBIA, S.C. — The University of South Carolina announced two major changes to the Fall 2020 academic calendar on Sunday. It comes after university leaders conferred with the Office of the Provost and public health experts.
UofSC will be canceling the fall break, and face-to-face instruction will conclude at Thanksgiving break.
Fall break was largely canceled because of the public health risks that come with thousands of students and faculty returning to campus at once after any travels over the break.
In a release from University President Bob Caslen,he noted the risks "could be significant for the campus and Columbia communities and could jeopardize the continuation of the semester."
