Temple University has unveiled plans to reopen its campus for the fall semester, painting a picture of what life at the Philadelphia college will be like in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
"After the Thanksgiving holiday, finals will be conducted remotely November 30 through December 4 for MCV Campus classes and November 30 to December 7 for Monroe Park Campus classes", the university announced.

The second phase will begin later this month and will allow research and clinics to resume at select locations on campus. The following phase, slated to begin at the end of June, allows for a small number of summer classes to be held in person.
"At this stage, we're looking at trying to develop a hybrid plan that will have some on-campus activity, but also have remote or virtual offerings", said Dale Keefe, the university's vice-president academic. Remote learning activities and options will be a component of most classes, and some classes will be offered entirely in a remote format.
Many courses may be blended, conducted in-person and online. Students wouldn't return to Morgantown until the beginning of the spring semester on January 19, 2021. Input is being accepted through Friday, June 5, at this online portal.
