Oct 1, 2020

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State University has announced that classes will be entirely online after the Thanksgiving break and that the college's fall commencement will not be held in-person because of coronavirus restrictions.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that University President John Floros said Wednesday the university surveyed students, faculty and staff at the Las Cruces campus about returning following the break. Classes currently online are not expected to change. There will be two weeks left in the fall semester following the holiday.

The campus will remain open after Thanksgiving to provide housing, dining and other services. The college plans to return to in-person classes after the December break.
