Moving You Back To School If Needed

Help moving into college dormA majority of the nearby colleges and universities have been negatively affected by COVID-19. Not only are large amounts of graduating high school seniors choosing to take gap years instead of enrolling, but many returning students are too uncomfortable to take classes that have never been taught in an online format. The Fall college semester is scheduled to start in the next several weeks. While most universities have chosen to go virtual due to COVID-19, some schools are still offering in-person classes and on-campus housing. If you still plan on moving back to school, Men On The Move stands ready to help you do it!

How COVID-19 Is Affecting Colleges

-Colleges are losing money.

The pandemic has caused financial problems in nearly every industry, education included. Many graduating high school seniors are choosing to take gap years instead of enrolling in online college classes at universities. The lack of incoming students is costing the universities revenue which causes the need for increased tuition and decreased financial aid offered.

-Professors have to try new teaching styles than their regular in-person lectures.

Many teachers have had to adopt new teaching styles as most have never had to teach classes primarily online. Online classes, while already considered harder than in-person classes by most students, have the potential to be much sloppier as the professors use trial-and-error methods to teach.

-Students have less social interaction with their peers. 

Many students view college as a social adventure. It is their time to make new friends and join clubs with people that share your interests. Unfortunately due to current events, clubs and extracurricular programs have been virtualized or postponed. For the more extroverted students, this can make the college experience very negative and isolated. 

Some majors have no choice but to return to school this Fall. Programs deemed too important to teach online, such as high-level science, math, and engineering courses, must be taught in person.
