Inside the Dome: where learning replaces sports for now
Inside the Dome: where learning replaces sports
The 2020-21 school year has brought many firsts, masked classes, socially distanced events, and unfortunately, no spectators in the Dome. One exception to that rule however is Professor Jeff Rubin’s Introduction to Information Technology (IST 195) which has given a few dozen Syracuse University students a front-row seat in the new and improved stadium.
Although there are no sports actively being played while the class is in session, students are socially distantly seated on the bleachers with orange SU cushion for their comfort. In order to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols, students are spaced 6 feet apart with an empty bleacher between each row of students. Sophomore advertising major Drew Bartelstein said she felt “safe” in the class because of the large open space. Bartelstein added that she felt the class layout and flow was “well-thought-out and executed.”
