Virtual or in-person? Locating student resources during the fall semester
This semester, units and departments across the University of Missouri–St. Louis welcomed students back to campus for a fall unlike any before.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, those providing student resources had to be innovative and flexible to keep students, staff and faculty safe while continuing to provide excellent service. That’s been accomplished with a mix of virtual and in-person offerings, and we at UMSL Daily were curious to know which services offered what. Take a look at the list below to discover what’s virtual and what’s not.
