SEATTLE — Seattle University is returning to in-person classes next week after starting the year with remote learning.
According to a letter from the school president, in-person instruction will resume Monday, Jan. 31.
“Our decision to remain remote until Jan. 30 was based on two factors: uncertainty about the nature and trajectory of the Omicron variant and a desire to limit the disruption of our students’ educational experience during what promised to be a wave of infections unlike any we had yet seen during the two years of this pandemic,” the letter said.
