Freshmen and other students who agreed to be in the campus on the basis of their academic needs are the only UG students living on the Cambridge and Massachusetts campus of the varsity.
Harvard University’s undergraduate admission has dropped 20 percent from last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
University spokeswoman, Rachael Dane said, “The Ivy League school has 5,382 undergrads at Harvard College for the fall semester, compared with 6,716 as of Oct. 15, 2019.”
With a 14 percent smaller freshman class, more than 200 accepted students informed Harvard that they want to begin in the next academic year.
Freshmen and other students who agreed to be on the campus on the basis of their academic needs are the only UG students living on the Cambridge and Massachusetts campus of the varsity. All instructions at Harvard College are remote for the 2020-2021 academic year.
U.S. colleges and universities are trying to ensure the health and safety of students and employees amid the Coronavirus pandemic. Administrators have been concerned that fewer students would want to get admitted this term, with mask-wearing, virus testing and limited interactions being in force for those colleges that have in-person classes.
