What's It Like Going Back To Learning In Person For College Students

College students are back learning in person.

As public school students in the region return to school this month, so too do many college students – who are resuming in-person classes for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

On campus here at Cal Lutheran in Thousand Oaks, the footpaths and on-site store are busy for the first time in months.

These students say it’s great to be back learning in person again after virtual learning for so long, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I'm actually enjoying it," one student told KCLU. "At first I thought, 'I don't know if it's going to be safe', but I walk around and it's been a good experience so far. I'm actually really looking forward to classes again, it's been more than a year without being in a classroom."

Another said, "I'm liking it so far, I've already met a few really nice cool people."

"It feels good," said another student on campus. "I missed learning in person and I missed socializing with people."

Cal Lutheran is the parent of KCLU.
