MADISON (WSUM) — Spring break at UW-Madison is over and classes will resume online, but while many students are staying at their permanent homes, others are still living on campus.
The university is encouraging all undergraduate students to return to or stay at their permanent residence rather than returning to Madison, according to an email.
Chancellor Rebecca Blank stated, “I know the last few weeks have been extremely difficult. Transitioning to online learning has happened on top of anxiety about your own health and your family’s well-being, as well as uncertainty about your research and professional obligations.”
While this time is filled with uncertainty and stress for many including students, you can find a list of available resources and updates below.
