“Due to continued uncertainty about when activity on campus can resume, we are moving all classes for both the Summer I and Summer II sessions online,” Dr. Christophe Pierre, Stevens provost and vice president for academic affairs, wrote on April 1st.

“Although we remain hopeful that we will all be able to return to campus in the not-so-distant future, we are making this move now to provide a degree of certainty to our students and faculty as they plan their schedules.”

He continued that both sessions will commence on their scheduled dates: May 19th for summer I classes and July 13th for summer II classes.

Stevens had requested students move off campus by last Friday as a proactive move to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which had infected a select few students and staff numbers.

As of last night, the City of Hoboken had revealed they had 152 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and are mourning their second death to due to complications from the virus: the mother of two police detectives.
