Lenoir-Rhyne To Delay Start Of Spring Semester By A Week

Lenoir-Rhyne University has delayed the start of classes by a week until January 18, 2022. The original start date was January 10. The decision was made to allow time for the holiday COVID-19 surge to subside and because of an increase in COVID-19 cases in students, faculty and staff.

Lenoir-Rhyne recently moved to require students, faculty and staff to get a booster dose. The requirement went into place on January 1 and everyone must have the shot by January 31, according to the university’s guidelines.

LRU will require masks in the spring semester. Students and staff are all required to have a negative COVID-19 test before returning to campus.
