Since COVID-19 started spreading across the United States and hit Montana last March, universities were faced with difficult decisions.
After going online-only through the summer, Montana State University-Northern reopened for a shortened fall semester on campus, working to provide a safe but high-quality education including using technological advances, adding additional time to classes and having finals remotely.
The university system had to quickly adapt to dealing with the pandemic, which has been confirmed in almost 19 million Americans and caused almost 331,000 U.S. deaths.
