Thoughts about going back to in-person classes

Description (Dublin Core)

Most institutions seem to be assuming at this point that the pandemic is wrapping up, and by Fall of this year we will be able to go back to in-person classes. I am unsure how I feel about that. On one hand, I am happy for the people who want in-person classes, especially those undergrads looking for the college experience. On the other, I have actually liked my online classes. I have no need to leave my apartment, and I only need to properly dress half my body for class. Now, for the first time, I will have to make my way to class in person at this university. I don't know yet how I will make that happen, as I have no car and it is around a 30 minute walk. The walk is actually no problem, I would walk most of the NDSU campus every day during undergrad. The problem will be the heat, as Arizona will get above 100 degrees nearly every day at the beginning of the semester. So for purely selfish reasons, I would actually prefer to stay online. As people with office jobs and such also go back, we will see if there is a push in society for online job options, or if things will truly go back to normal.
