The University of Ottawa has announced that the 2021 winter semester will be held online aside from a few exceptions. Because of COVID-19, staff and students have been forced to adjust to online learning methods for the 2020 spring/summer term, and the 2020 fall term. Is continuing on a remote learning format the way to go or should the University consider returning to in-person courses?

As COVID-19 continues to bring uncertainty, various Gee-Gees sports teams are awaiting announcements regarding their seasons, or already shifting their focus to 2021. Athletes from the football team, men’s and women’s rugby teams, and the men’s ultimate frisbee team share their outlook on the current situation.

With a new virtual semester approaching, students who took part in the summer semester share their experiences with the ups and downs of their U of O’s first predominantly online semester.

For the first time in its storied history, the University of Ottawa will offer the majority of its courses online this fall, meaning the presence of most students on campus is not necessary. Financially for most students, this is great news as they won’t have to rent an apartment or live in residence but if you’re an incoming student and still on the fence about whether or not you should come to campus and live in residence, here’s the case for staying home.
