Rice Delays Classes Two Days and Goes Virtual

Rice University has announced a move to virtual learning for the first two-weeks of the semester because of the rise in covid cases.

Rice is also going to start classes two days later than scheduled, stating in a letter sent to undergraduates Thursday night that Rice is finding the number of breakthrough cases higher than expected.

Students who live locally are advised not to move on campus until the weekend of September 4.

Online instruction will start Wednesday and continue until September 3rd.

Until then, indoor dining in group settings and consumption of alcohol on campus are prohibited.

Rice says it fully intends to return to total in-person instruction in the fall semester.
