LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The College of Law at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is having class outside in a tent, all to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep students safe while learning.

Monday marked the first day of in-person classes at UNL but some students didn’t start their day in a classroom but rather a tent. Several classes at the College of Law over in East Campus will be taught in a tent outside of the building in order to keep students safe while learning. The classes are planned to stay outside in the tent until the beginning of October, weather depending. The students don’t seem to mind the idea of having class with a view.

“I think it’s really fun and kinda nice being in the fresh air and not being in the building the whole time. I think it’s really innovative and a creative way to be safe and still have class in-person” UNL student, Taylor Christopher, told Channel 8 News.

Students still have to wear their masks during the lecture outside and sit at least 6 feet apart from one another.

Several schools across the country have jumped on this idea of teaching in tents outside in order to keep students safe while attending in-person classes.

UNL started the semester last week via online.
