“many aspects of student life will remain altered”
This is good news. If Harvard does this, many schools will follow their lead.

Harvard University announces it will open for fall semester, likely with some modifications
Harvard University announced Monday that they intend to reopen for the upcoming fall 2020 semester.
Despite the announcement, university executives said that due to the undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools’ differing approaches to learning and research, many aspects of student life will remain altered.
“Our goal is to sustain our teaching and research mission during this global pandemic, while also ensuring the health and safety of our community,” Provost Alan Garber said in a written statement.
Harvard transitioned to a virtual format March 23 as a result of the growing concern surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
“Even if conditions do not allow for a traditional fall experience on campus, we are committed to ensuring that the learning and research of our students will continue at the highest levels of excellence and that we will do our part to enable them to achieve their aspirations,” Garber wrote.
2/2 Because our Schools have different approaches to learning and research, aspects of the fall semester will likely vary among them. Harvard Schools will be communicating in the weeks ahead with more School-specific guidance about plans for the fall. https://t.co/6EfKpKFQv9
