CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State University students are reacting to university's vaccine requirement announcement made on Tuesday.
KEZI spoke to several students who were in favor of this decision.
"I'm excited to go back to normal, have more classes in person," OSU junior Emily Lew said. "Especially, like our smaller hands-on labs that we have here at Oregon State. I'm pretty excited about that."
Several students including Annie Olsen, a junior at OSU said this is a step towards getting back to normal.
"Really missing in person classes and the learning we get from that. Online has been really hard. Especially when we're talking upper division classes. So being able to be more in hands on or with the professors will be really helpful."
Oregon State University is planning to require all students and faculty to receive a COVID-19 vaccine before returning to campus in the fall, according to university officials.
Students participating in online-only learning will not be required to get vaccinated, but the university is encouraging all members of its community to get the shot.
