CTN Campuses Offer Resources to Students During COVID
South Texas College announced a few weeks ago that summer classes would be moved to on-line. The college is doing this to ensure the safety of students and facility workers. However, several Ascender students voiced the opinion that they do not like online classes.
"...What is occurring is a “gentle” reminder that we must be more compassionate, more tolerant, more loving, en fin more human.
"I’ve been feeling a little bit overwhelmed and stressed about moving all my classes to online."
