During this time, there are a lot of unknowns about whether or not students will be back in school in the fall, but at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP), they’re testing out in-person classes.

Athletic Training students at UWSP have been back with in-person classes for over two weeks, but they are taking new COVID-19 safety precautions which have become the new norm for students.

“I think it’s a privilege that we get to be here and have in-person class,” UWSP Athletic Training Student Abby Ruppel said. “I love it, I really enjoy being able to see people have a little bit of hands-on work and just be able to see your instructor face to face makes quite a difference.”

In a course that involves so much hands-on work with other people, it’s difficult to social distance.
