Michigan State University plans to offer in-person instruction in 75% of undergraduate classes in the fall, and spectators will be welcomed again at sports events and performing arts shows, the president said Friday.

“I am excited at the prospect of coming back together again, and I am greatly looking forward to seeing our vibrant community of students, faculty and staff fully engaged in on-campus life,” Samuel Stanley Jr. said in a letter.

Stanley encouraged staff and students to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as they qualify.

He didn’t offer any details about attending Big Ten games on campus but said spectators will be allowed. Stanley said attendance will depend on state rules for large crowds.

Most undergraduate classes at MSU have been online since after the Michigan outbreak began a year ago.

“We will constantly be reviewing our plans for the fall and keeping you informed along the way,” Stanley said.
