Monday was day one of fall classes at Lake Superior College with new health protocols in place.

Those protocols include mask requirements, COVID-19 self-assessment screening, social distancing, smaller class sizes, and much more.

The college is offering both in person and online classes and a majority of classes are also offered in a hybrid model.

Vice president of external relations Daniel Fanning said day one of classes was exciting and said staff were happy to see the campus filled with students again.

"Honestly I think the best part so far is welcoming the students. We weren't sure how that would go as far as would they be nervous or excited. It's a bit of both but honestly you feel there's more excitement in the air. Students are ready to get out of the house and get a little back to normal," said Fanning.

Fanning said faculty and students are all cooperating well with the new changes and said they've also seen an increase in enrollment these past couple of weeks.
