I could be alone on this forum about this topic, but I know I am not alone in the student body. For everyone I've talked to, we have all agreed that our academic motivation will severely deteriorate and suffer, as well as our mental health. I don't believe shutting classes down again is the solution, since students will remain on campus and many will not (or not be able to afford to) leave Chapel Hill. I think increased consequences of students violating social distancing and masks in the classroom and continuing the standards of cleaning will not change the current rates of cases, but have a significant and positive impact on students' learning opportunities and mental health. We are all suffering in various ways, and I fully believe that students should be allowed to stay home if they choose, as well as professors hold remote classes if they feel they need to. But the few classes we had in person felt safe and productive. Fraternities are not going to go home just because classes are now remote; I just think the most productive tactic would be to enforce the rules of the university regarding COVID, just like we would with our issues with racism, honor court, etc.
