MUNCIE, Ind. (WEHT) — Ball State University announced Wednesday it is suspending all in-person classes for the rest of the spring semester beginning March 16.

President Geoffrey Mearns said in an online letter the in-person classes will be replaced with virtual instruction and other alternative learning options. Mearns says students are not being directed to leave campus, and University services and offices will remain open.

From March 16 until April 30, all University-sponsored/funded events of 100 people or more are also suspended.

Mearns says they hope to host Commencement, but a final decision will be made at a later date.
