COVID-19 On Campus

Sep 17, 2020

College students across the state have moved back in for the start of the school year. Schools say they’re implementing proper measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, but some students say schools aren’t doing enough. And some have accused colleges and universities of not holding themselves accountable, using claims of irresponsible student behavior as a scapegoat.

Today we talk to students from Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s college to find out how their lives have changed since moving back on campus, and what they want from the administration. We also talk to a pair of public health experts leading the COVID-19 efforts at Indiana University.
