Colleges plan return to in-person everything this fall
New England College announced Monday that it is planning for a full return to in-person classes and open facilities in the fall, making it the latest of several New Hampshire colleges and universities looking ahead to reopening.
The college, which has campuses in Henniker and Manchester, held classes remotely in the spring of 2020, switching to a mix of in-person, hybrid and remote options last fall.
“We have been wonderfully successful in creating safe teaching and learning environments in Henniker and Manchester with very few COVID cases, nearly all of which were asymptomatic,” New England College President Michele Perkins said in a statement Monday. “As we return to a nearly normal residential program, we know we still have a lot of work to do. Though we remain hopeful that the scourge of COVID will soon be behind us, we remain vigilant in this very volatile environment.”
