While elementary and high school students are waiting to find out just how long Gov. Ducey will keep schools closed, college students across Arizona’s three major state universities know they will not be returning to campus classes for the rest of the semester.

In an email to the ASU community, President Michael Crow announced that in-person classes will be moved online "wherever possible" through the end of the spring semester. On top of this, all public events on campus not directly related to teaching and research are also suspended — that includes sports.

The Show with Crow about the decision and what it means for the university’s more than 70,000 students.
