UTRGV gearing up for new semester
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley has implemented safety protocols to avoid COVID-19 outbreaks before the first day of class next week.
During the university's move-in day Thursday, students were asked to remain in their vehicles while waiting to receive the keys to their dorms.
School officials say single and double-occupancy rooms are available for students.
Though masks are not required in residential halls or on campus, UTRGV officials say they're encouraging everyone to wear one.
In-person and online classes begin Monday, Aug. 23.
