Ohio University announced Thursday that because of the coronavirus, all student organization events will be suspended, and no organizations will get any student activity funding during the suspension of in-person activities.

All in-person activities will be suspended concurrently to the university’s decision, according to an email from the Campus Involvement Center.

This comes after OU decided to move all in-person classes to online instruction until March 30.

During the suspension, SAC will not be funding any programming requests.

OU also decided to suspend all child-care activities at the Child Development Center, according to a university news release.

Full-time employees will continue to work at the center, but teaching fellows, interns, lab students and student employees will not be able to return to the center while the suspension lasts. 

This is because the center relies on OU students to maintain a state-mandated child-teacher ratio, so the center will not be able to operate until OU students can return.
