My son is in college.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "Okay...and?"

That's fair. But allow me to finish. He is in college and he is studying online.

And you're thinking "Okay...and?"

My point is that he is a lot like others who may be in institutions of higher learning these days because he is studying online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He's been doing it for awhile and you have to wonder if there is an end in sight. At least I wonder. And I wonder because I have the luxury of not having to take the chance of being around other kids who may have decided "the heck with these COVID rules and regulations and let's party!!!!!". Of course we all have a pretty good idea of how that all ends up, right? A spike in COVID-19 cases.

So yeah, I get it if kids are comfortable staying safe and studying online away from others. However, I also get it if kids want to observe the safety guidelines and get out and do some in person instruction if it is available. But there is not a lot and it will not be available at some universities for a while yet.

And here's where Michigan State University, The University of Michigan and Wayne State University come in with what they all have in common.

According to WLNS it looks like all three universities will continue with online classes for the rest of this academic year, with students being able to hopefully return to a classroom situation next Fall.
