SDSU prepping for college students for the fall semester

BROOKINGS, S.D.(KJJQ)- Educators across the country are concerned with the impact of the pandemic on students. The biggest impact will likely be on the K-12 system but it will also affect college students.

South Dakota State University President Barry Dunn says they’ll be looking closely at the results of professional tests.

He says they’re preparing for incoming freshman who had to deal with a very difficult year.

Dunn gives credit to the Brookings School system for not even missing a day of having students in the classroom. That was not the case for many schools in the state. And, SDSU will be getting students from states where they spent the entire year with remote learning.

Dunn says the plan now is to return to normal for classes and activities in the fall.
