Viterbo buildings remain open so far this fall



La Crosse’s private Catholic college is carrying on classes as best it can, while the city is one of the hot spots for COVID-19 around the U.S. 

Viterbo University does not have any buildings closed, nearly a month into the fall semester, and about half of the classes are happening in-person. 

Interim provost Rick Trietley at Viterbo says 76 total cases have been reported on campus, with the peak occurring last week. 

Only 25 per cent of the students are living on-campus, and some students have decided to move back home for now.    

Viterbo has 1400 undergraduate students this fall, with another 1000 in graduate or adult classes. 

Trietley says the V-Hawks fall sports season is going ahead as scheduled, but public events at the Center for the Arts probably will be off for the rest of the calendar year.  

UW-La Crosse remains in a two-week campus lockdown because of a surge in COVID-19 cases. 

Trietley says about 50 per cent of the Viterbo classes are being taught face-to-face at this time, with only 20 per cent presented completely on line.
