On Friday, education officials with the University of Evansville said operations at the University would be getting back to normal this fall.

According to the statement released by UE on Friday, the University plans to offer most courses in-person for the Fall 2021 semester, also offering online and hybrid courses when appropriate.

"Since the pandemic arrived last year, we have been looking forward to the day when we can safely return to normal," said Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz, University of Evansville president. "Even if there are precautions in place in the fall, we have every intention of providing the complete in-person college experience that is the foundation of our education at UE."

Although the fall semester will bring with it the resumption of in-person instruction, UE says safety remains a top priority.

The University's plans were developed in accordance with COVID-19 trends at the local, state, and national levels, and recognize the increasing availability of vaccines and reduced rates of transmission.

UE's fall semester will follow a normal class schedule and is set to begin Wednesday, August 25.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
