Here's a question right now that's so up in the air. Will Michigan State University have in-person classes this fall?

The answer: We'll know in July!

MSU students may have to wait until July to learn if they'll return to campus in the fall.

According to the Lansing State Journal, MSU President Samuel Stanley Jr. said to the campus community that he doesn't know when classes will resume on the East Lansing campus after in person classes were suspended in March during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over 8,000 freshman have submitted their enrollment deposits and another 2,100 who deferred the deposit until June 1 wondering whether they'll be in East Lansing in August or taking classes from home.

My step son Braden is one those freshman and I was talking with him the other day and he said it really doesn't matter to him whether they have in-person classes or not. He's just ready for college and ready to be an MSU Spartan.

Stanley said that safety will continue to be Michigan State's guiding principle. He also said, at this moment, the unknown far exceeds what we can know about the public health picture and governmental responses that will be in effect in late summer, here in Michigan or anywhere.

Some Michigan schools have already said they plan to bring students back to campus in the fall. The Lansing State Journal has more.
