What's Happening On Campus?
I know there are some UT employees on this board. So what's happening? How many students returned? Any information on Covid 19 cases? What's the vibe?

RE: What's Happening On Campus?
down about 7% in total student headcount (official numbers on 15th census day), really notice the impact of mostly remote classes, plenty of parking spots-I left for appointment off campus mid day yesterday and lot 10 was still only 60% full when I got back-normal year would taken 20 minutes to find spot there, similar impacts in terms of people on campus, walking, in student union, buildings and classrooms, no issues with mask wearing indoors, still plenty of concern about COVID-19. UT is soon to launch a Dashboard to communicate data on cases, % positive from requested tests and 2,000 random volunteer sample tests over next month.

Who is surprised? I mean the bars shut down at 10, so the kids head over at 9, slam some drinks, then walk to the frat houses...

apparently did not happen on campus or in frat houses (who are themselves enforcing strict social distancing requirement), virus was spread by students at off campus events and parties

“ . . . normal year would taken 20 minutes to find spot there (Lot 10)”

Until this year, nothing has changed in at least six decades!

I don't think that's completely true. The spots it takes 20 minutes to find are much nicer. Nice lines. New surfacing.

Actually, finding a spot in 20 minutes is a nice improvement in most cases. Parking spaces served as motivation for signing up for 8 AM classes. Nicely paved lots are a real plus.

even a bigger panic when you're supposed to be teaching the class. I think that's how just-in-time manufacturing got inspired.
