Students will come back March 23

LYNCHBURG, Va. – UPDATE:

In a tweet, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. said the school is moving classes to larger rooms, gyms, arenas, even outside when weather permits.


As several colleges and universities have decided to move classes online because of the growing coronavirus concerns, Liberty University is going another route. Classes will continue as normal.

On Friday, university president Jerry Falwell Jr. said students will be allowed to go home for spring break Saturday and will come back to campus but with modifications.

Falwell says they'll eliminate large crowd gatherings and hold convocation online for a couple of weeks.

On Tuesday, the school called off international trips for students studying abroad for spring and summer semesters.
