NIU President Lisa Freeman joined several other Illinois public universities in announcing that classes would be conducted remotely for the remainder of the semester to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
She says there are possible exceptions for a small number of labs, internships, clinical and practicum programs. But there is no official word as yet on what those courses may be.
Jacob Chan is an NIU student. He says he’s not sure how his classes will translate to the new online format.
