It has been approximately one month since post-secondary students headed back to school, most of them online.
On Friday, the University of Calgary announced it was planning to increase the amount of in-class learning for the winter semester from 20 percent to 30 percent.
Marley Gillies, vice-president of the University of Calgary Students’ Union, said the quick transition to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic was tough.
“The adjustment in the winter semester was really difficult,” said Gillies. “The switch was hard”.
Gillies said while the campus is quiet, behind the scenes, students are busy, and the union is encouraging them to take advantage of clubs still taking place online.
“We’re hoping that it helps ease the adjustment and make it easier for students to complete their education and still have a social life,” Gillies said.
