    I like how UVM has set a policy that on campus students can't have on campus visitors in their dorms. Have they ever met a college student? Where else are they gonna shag???

    The shire, redstone pines, anywhere on trinity campus, apparently my former burn spot is now a dorm, would have also been a good location....

    Well, if college is anything like my AF tech schools were, the answer is EVERYWHERE. Among the shadows, I saw students banging behind dumpsters, in the jet exhausts of aircraft static displays (seriously), on picnic benches, cars of course, under trees, behind bushes, the list goes on. (I was at a base that also had the med schools so lots of hawt female trainees) When you're 18-22 and hormones have you revved up beyond all control, the possibilities are endless!

    Lol @ the administration thinking no dorm visits will do anything to squash any hanky panky.

    Apparently UVM admitted a bunch of incels as initial testing shows low rates of infection.

    How has the pandemic affected your learning? How do you feel about distance learning? Does this affect the quality of knowledge? I can definitely say that the pandemic negatively affects knowledge. By my own example, I can say that when studying offline, I learn the material better and I try to do all my homework myself, and with distance learning I relax and I order most of my homework on one of the services that I found on PickTheWriter But this is also positive side. I spend the free time on writing music and communicating with my loved ones.

    My kids are supposed to start back on campus with in person classes next week. They are required to show up or will fail the two classes that have in person sessions. There is no way out of it and it totally fucks us. The facility my father in law lives in has told us (and other parents) that if their kids attend in person school classes that we won't be able to visit with him anymore until two weeks after their last class. This could mean we have to go until the end of December until we can see him again which is just unacceptable. The guy has serious dementia and melts down when we can't see him for more than a day or two. We can't have the kids fail or drop the classes because they're seniors and that would screw them out of graduating. They already have to take classes in the spring because they were cancelled this semester and if they drop these two classes that means they have to go again next fall so instead of graduating this year in December like they were supposed to they'd have two additional semesters. This is so fucked...

    Both kids at MSU since mid-August and things seem to be going well. Remaining cautiously optimistic at this point...

    4 cases total for faculty, staff and students since 8/26 @ Reed: https://www.reed.edu/coronavirus/cases.html .

    So that's about .4%

    CU is a fucking mess. Cases are doubling every week. 16% positive rate. They've asked all students to isolate themselves, but they're still living in dorms and sharing bathrooms, so...

    Space the set aside for infected students is close to full, so their booting some kids out of their dorm and moving them somewhere else to create more quarantine space. So glad I'm teaching remotely and don't have to go to campus ever.

    From this graph, UMIAMI seems to be doing good. 17000 students. 1/3 have elected to do on-line only. I'm not sure how many students have elected to take a gap year. Under 5% positivity rate. Every student is required to submit to a COVID test every 2 weeks. My son said that the campus is much quieter than in previous years, and that everyone is wearing a mask. Empty classrooms are being used by students who have both in person and on-line obligations during the same day to listen to their on-line classes. No intramural sports at this time.

    Daughters friend is on rowing team at UM....she has said same...quiet, but kids are adhering to rules pretty well.

    From what I observe...(at my school district/area)....people/kids are really doing a better job with the masks/distancing....Iím hoping/thinking everyone just wants things to get better, and the only way to do that is to mask up and try to keep away as much as possible.

    The recent Fauci 2022 comment has got me pretty depressed though......that would make my kids entire college academic/athletic careers within his shut down window.....thatís pretty sad to think about.

    Oh well, both do seem happy where they are at...they are at least on campus and enjoying their classes/labs..so they have that, because most/all of their friends from home are all stuck at home doing online.

    Well, my kids school has been open for a few weeks now and Covid has been a non issue which is surprising because the city it's in is surrounded by increasing cases and the city hospital Covid ward is 3 blocks from the main campus. It's masks everywhere so they spend their time between classes sitting in the car because all of the lounges on campus are closed and you need to show that you're working on an assignment to spend time in the library, no general lounging and studying allowed. They have to preorder and prepay their lunch from the deli in the student center, they go in and pick it up and leave because there's no indoor dining. Overall they're glad to be there because it gives them most of one day a week away from us but with no social scene and enforced distancing they say it's not much fun to be there.
