College students are ready to get back to campus, even though the coronavirus outbreak is still a threat, according to a new poll.
An Axios/College Reaction poll released Wednesday indicates that college students are ready to return to campus and attend classes in person.
Poll results show:
- 76% of students plan to return to campus this fall if they have the option.
- 66% of students say they would attend in-person classes.
- 67% of students say they would leave campus if there's a major coronavirus outbreak.
- 71% of students say they don’t plan on attending sporting events if they take place.
- 79% of students say they won’t attend parties.
- 54% of students say they would voluntarily download an app to conduct contact tracing.
- 95% of students say they currently wear masks when they can't socially distance.
Colleges and universities have been working to figure out their reopening plans. Some have submitted plans for strictly online only learning, while others are planning a hybrid approach with both in-person classes and online instruction.
The poll surveyed 800 college students between July 13-14. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
