First day of classes for students at UWS

Updated: September 02, 2020 05:27 PM

It was a unique first day of classes for students at UWS Wednesday. Campus is a little quieter with some students doing classes online and others on campus.

Students and staff are required to wear face masks and there's plenty of hand sanitizer to go around on campus. Students said it feels different and is something they’ve been slowly adjusting to.

"It's been like an experience I've never felt before with corona going around. Going to classes on Zoom it's not really my cup of tea but whatever has to be done and makes everybody safe that's what we have to do," said Isaiah Williams, a sophomore at UWS.

"Being locked up in your room most of the day, you can't really interact with people. You have to keep six feet apart. Corona really made everything a little bit weird but it's something we can adapt to. I feel we've done a pretty good job," said Tyrell Tellis-Martin, a sophomore at UWS.

Students are keeping their distance and getting used to the new look of campus with plexiglass and a less crowded campus, but said they will do what they need to do to keep everyone on campus safe.
