Drexel Undergraduate Courses to Remain Remote for the Fall

The following message from President John Fry about undergraduate classes being held remotely for the fall term was sent to the Drexel community on Aug. 19: I have emphasized previously that Drexel’s planning is only as good as our community’s ability to adhere to protocols set forth to keep us safe, and it is now clear that similar protocols are proving tough to follow at many universities across the nation.

There are just too many aspects of the pandemic beyond our control.
