Florida A&M University Students Set To Return Soon

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

Officials at Florida A&M University are moving forward with reopening the campus to returning students. Chief ethics and compliance officer Rica Calhoun explained the school’s approach during Thursday’s Board meeting.

"We have three main dates for reopen, the college of law being on August 10, FAMU DRS on August 19, and the main campus and operation on August 24. The Bragg stadium site remains open and we’re working toward increasing capacity of the current site for faculty staff and students returning to campus."

Right now the University is in phase 4 which includes reconfiguring classrooms to promote social distancing. Certain employees have also started returning to campus. Move-in for students begins August 10.
