CMU Going Online After Thanksgiving Break

Central Methodist University faculty and students will use the power of Digital U to its fullest by finishing the Fall 2020 semester remotely after Thanksgiving break.

In-person classes begin August 18 at CMU. Classes will be in session on Labor Day and the university will forgo its usual fall break. Students depart for Thanksgiving recess on Saturday, November 21, returning to class remotely on Monday, November 30. Final exams will be handled remotely December 7-11.

CMU President Roger Drake said the decision to modify the semester’s academic calendar was made to minimize the possible spread of COVID-19 upon returning to campus after Thanksgiving break.

“We’re very fortunate to be able to make such a move with ease thanks to Digital U,” Drake said. “Our students are in the Digital U environment the entire semester, so it’s a move to which they are accustomed.”

For those not able to leave campus, residence halls will remain open over the Thanksgiving break and through December 11.
