ALLEN TOWN, Pa. (AP) Another Pennsylvania college has changed its mind about bringing students back to campus.

Muhlenberg College in Allentown had been planning a full return to campus for the fall semester, but said Thursday that “significant surges” of the virus nationwide and a rise in infection rates among college-age people forced a change in plans.

Now, only first-year students will be invited to live on campus, along with a limited number of upperclass students. All upperclass students — whether they’re living on or off campus — will take courses remotely, and only a limited amount of in-person instruction will be offered to first-year students.

“The surge in cases in certain regions of our country has had an impact on our ability to open safely with a full population of students,” President Kathleen Harring said in a message to the campus community.
