Although the weather was cloudy, rainy and cold, the student spirit was bright on the first day of undergraduate classes of the spring 2022 semester.
Undergraduate classes started on Tuesday, Jan. 25, after a one-week delay to the start of the semester. The week delay allowed the university to ramp up COVID-19 precautions and provided students more time to receive their COVID-19 booster shots in light of the current national surge of omicron cases.
The delayed start of classes did not affect previously scheduled breaks, such as Mardi Gras and spring break along with other holidays. The date of Commencement 2022 was also not affected. The spring 2022 academic calendar can be viewed here.
As the university community continues to navigate through the pandemic, students, faculty and staff will continue to test at Tulane’s COVID-19 Testing Centers. Additionally, all students, faculty and staff are required to receive a COVID-19 booster once they are eligible for one.
