圣母大学的校长正因为和学生站得太久而道歉(社交距离emmm);普林斯顿大学在开学前几周取消了面授课程;而加拿大边境巡逻队拒绝了一位母亲开车送女儿去麦吉尔大学的请求,因为她是美国公民...
2020年秋季高校入学注定是一场混乱的群像剧。仅仅在马萨诸塞州,高校授课方式就多得令人眼花缭乱。东北大学已经全身心投入了面授教学,长期以来,该校都以提供工作经验而闻名,现在它又大肆宣传另一个特色:一个校内实验室可以一天处理5000个COVID-19的测试(内心os:所以大家都放心来学校上课吧!!)而过去一直欢迎家长参与新生入学活动的塔夫茨大学(据说是为了招揽到新的捐赠者),现在不得不告诉一些学生,他们的家长无法帮他们搬入宿舍了。在哈佛大学,所有课程都将是网课,新生们根本不用入住学校。只有四分之一的本科生会在校园里,而他们也需要定期接受COVID-19检测、每天证明自己没有症状。大约有20%的哈佛新生决定推迟入学。与此同时,威廉姆斯学院正在做令人难以想象的事情:提供一个15%的学费折扣。
为了保持一定的社交距离,杜克大学将在学校拥有的华盛顿杜克酒店和高尔夫俱乐部里为学生们提供住宿;同时,在这所以团魂精神著称的学校里,聚会将被限制在10名学生以内。
根据戴维森的College Crisis Initiative的数据,有三分之一的四年制公立大学(包括非营利性大学)将完全或主要进行面授课程,27%完全或主要在网上授课,还有21%是混合型的。就在上周,还有40所学校,从提供部分面授课程切换到了完全进行网课。
价值6000多亿美元的高等教育行业正在竭尽所能保持偿付能力。根据全美高校商务官员协会的数据,该行业大约60%到80%的收入来自于学费和其他向学生收取的费用。

The University of Notre Dame’s president apologized for posing near students for a photo. Princeton canceled in-person classes just weeks before they begin. Canada’s border patrol turned away a mother driving her daughter to McGill because of her U.S. citizenship. Today, in Massachusetts alone, the variety is dizzying. Northeastern University has gone all in on in-person instruction. Long famed for promoting work experience, it is now trumpeting another specialty: an on-campus lab to process 5,000 Covid-19 tests a day. Or consider Tufts University. Colleges, eager to win over new donors, have long welcomed parents to help kids decorate or hear from administrators in orientation. Tufts said some students will have to move into their dorms without any help from parents or loved ones. Harvard University, where all classes will be virtual, isn’t requiring students to come at all. Only a quarter of undergraduates will be on campus, and they’ll face a world where they’ll be tested regularly and have to attest daily they are symptom free -- or, in its parlance, are “Crimson Clear.” Some 20% of freshmen decided to defer enrolling -- postponing the hottest ticket in higher ed. Meanwhile, Williams College is doing the unthinkable. Acknowledging the reality of a diminished, socially distant semester, it is offering a 15% discount. Some will have it worse than others. At Duke University in North Carolina, junior Shrey Majmudar will be trading a dorm for his own room at the college-owned Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. The school reserved lodgings there to provide more social distancing. Yet, there will be sacrifices, as well. In a school known for its spirit, Duke is restricting gatherings to 10 students or fewer. A third of four-year nonprofit and public colleges are opening entirely or mostly in person, 27% are fully or primarily online and 21% are a hybrid, or a mix of the two, according to Davidson’s College Crisis Initiative, which is tracking universities’ responses. In the last week, 40 schools, or 3%, Switched from partly in-person to fully online.  source
