The Ohio State University announced Friday it will cancel spring break for the spring 2021 semester and instead will have two instructional break days, where no classes will be held.
“This approach will keep our community together throughout the semester and reduce travel-related exposures.” said Bruce McPheron, executive vice president for the university.
Ohio State’s spring semester will begin on Jan 11 and classes will take place through a mix of in-person and online teaching.
