Bowdoin College won't be allowing students and staff to return to campus after spring break.

Instead, administrators say the school is shifting to remote learning due to coronavirus concerns.

The President of Bowdoin says commencement may not take place the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, but it will still be held.

The college president says classes will not be held March 23 and 24 to allow instructors to prepare for online classes.

Those begin Wednesday, March 25.

The school has 1,800 students.

Any who live on campus must be out of their room by next Wednesday at 5.

Bowdoin is also restricting any gatherings on campus to fewer than 100 people.

All admissions tours and information sessions have been canceled for the remainder of the semester.
