COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) — The Mississippi University for Women is shortening its upcoming fall semester because of the coronavirus.
The university announced Thursday it will start fall classes on August 17 and end them on November 24, which is two days before Thanksgiving.
Exams will start on November 18.
The fall semester last year ran from the middle of August into December and included a two-day Fall Break.

As for summer commencement, the W will hold it virtually August 1 at 10 a.m.
