Hampshire and Other Area Colleges Prepare for Spring Semester

Hampshire College, which had only six confirmed COVID-19 cases during the fall semester, will again welcome back the majority of its full student population this spring.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports on the spring semester plans for the Five College Consortium:

"As the start of spring semester draws closer, over 9,000 students are expected to return to campus after a fall semester that was mostly remote for many.

"Campuses that operated on a remote basis in the fall, such as Mount Holyoke and Smith Colleges, are welcoming a general student population back to campus for the first time this academic year, while Amherst College and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, which offered housing to a limited number of students, are upping their capacity — in UMass’ case, by around 4,500 students. Hampshire College, which invited all students back to campus in the fall, will remain largely unchanged."
