(Photo Gallery) Texas State kicks off Summer II, introduces new Alkek Design Lab

Sydney Swatsworth, Multimedia Contributor

Texas State announced July 2 it would be moving the majority of face-to-face classes for summer II to an online format in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The only exceptions are classes that require a face to face component for licensure or degree requirements.

A campus usually occupied by thousands of students during any given semester now only allows 200, leaving eery feelings for the few around.

Preceding the start of the summer II semester, the new Design Space located on the first floor of Alkek Library opened for limited use with social distancing measures in place. The lab features new computers, 3D printers, sewing machines and more for student use.
