BC plans to resume on-campus classes on August 31 as scheduled, University President William Leahy announced in an email on Tuesday.
“In some ways it’s a compromise, but it demonstrates a recognition of some longtime asks from students.”
“We probably added about 100 majors in the last year or so,” said Kenji Hayao, the director of undergraduate studies for the department. “We don’t have enough seats, essentially.”
“They seem, to me, the exact sort of class that ought to be taken pass/fail, so that the obsequiousness encouraged by the obsession with grades can be put aside for once, giving students the chance to speak without the normal consequences of expressing unformed thoughts.”
