For animation student Tikal Rivera, staying busy and positive has been a key to success during the pandemic. Rivera has been instrumental in building and maintaining DePaul's animation community.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, DePaul invested in and installed improved ventilation systems to ensure that when everyone returns to campus this fall, they are learning and working in a safe environment.
DePaul has new procedures in place to promote safety in restrooms for the limited populations of people who will be using them on campus in the fall.
The university has a full slate of online student activities planned for this fall, as well as limited on campus programming. In an effort to assist students, DePaul is waiving the Student Activity Fee and Athletic Fee for the fall quarter.
When limited in-person staffing resumed on July 20, the library immediately started working to expand key services, such as reopening the book drops, scanning materials and digitizing DVDs. While the libraries remain closed for the summer, the next tier of services will enhance access to physical and digital material essential to teaching and learning.
