In a precautionary effort to safeguard the Athens State University campus community, it has become necessary to take additional steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). In that effort, all on-campus and blended classes will transition to online instruction beginning after Spring Break, Monday, March 23.
We are not aware of any COVID-19 cases among our students, faculty, or staff at this time. However, we are moving classes online out of an abundance of caution. We also feel this will better allow our students to manage childcare needs associated with this situation.
As one of the first institutions in the state of Alabama to offer distance learning opportunities, Athens State is well-equipped to serve students electronically during this uncertain and rapidly-evolving time, and we are committed to the continuity of learning for all students.
Athens-Limestone County Tourism is providing a collection of press releases and information regarding closures, modified hours of operation, and other information about Covid-19 and its impacts via this blog.
