Another Tri-State college has joined the growing list of institutions returning to in-person instruction for the fall semester of 2021.

Kentucky Wesleyan College President Dr. Thomas Mitzel says the College's goal is to return to a fully operational residential campus in the fall of 2021.

“We have every intention of a full return to campus for the fall 2021 semester,” said Mitzel. “Given the current trends and vaccination rates, I am optimistic that we will be able to return to a fully operating residential experience for our students and larger KWC community,"   "Although we will not be able to carry out all of our actions in the same manner as pre-COVID, high vaccination rates among our community will allow the campus to begin many of its normal operations with requisite safety protocols in place.”

Kentucky Wesleyan has operated throughout the 2020-21 academic year in a hybrid fashion. 

All academic classrooms and meeting spaces were reset to allow for appropriate physical distancing, and traditional holidays and breaks were removed from the academic calendar to limit travel and potential exposure.

While the College now plans to return to in-person instruction, President Mitzel says they plan to continue to monitor COVID-19 data and follow the CDC/Kentucky guidelines.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
