November 2, 2020 – Ephraim, UT – Today Snow College announced its plan to continue with face-to-face instruction for the rest of the semester. The college also plans to resume face-to-face classes as regularly scheduled on January 11 for Spring Semester. This decision made by college leadership came after listening to student feedback and carefully considering the metrics that matter – specifically current COVID-19 cases on campuses and the number of hospitalizations.
Snow College is one of the few institutions in the nation still offering most of its classes face-to-face, and President Bradley J. Cook thanked employees and students for their efforts that have allowed students the opportunity to stay on campus, learning in person. Cook also asked the college community to practice preventative behaviors including wearing a face covering and avoiding large, casual social gatherings. He said, “With everyone’s commitment to protect each other, we believe we can finish this semester and have another successful semester amidst this pandemic. We will continue to monitor the number of cases and hospitalizations we have, and we will continue to work closely with our local health officials and take direction from state leaders.” Cook noted that if there are significant changes in the data shared via the COVID-19 dashboard or other sources, the administration will reassess the decision and notify the college community of any changes.
