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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
