STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — Some leasing directors in Starkville are worried on whether students will return to campus in the Fall or move to online learning.
Mississippi State University administartors announced that students and faculty will return to campus for in-person classes in the fall semester.
However, while still in a coronavirus pandemic some property managers are concerned that students may choose to continue to take classes online.
Brandi Kirkland is the leasing and marketing director for The Social Campus.
She said she and her team are worried about less students returning to Starkville for housing.
Brandi said when the complex reopens its amenities workers will provide cleaning products.
“We’re really trying to make it to where our residents don’t necessarily feel like we’re in a pandemic," she said. "Once we’re able to reopen our gym and our club house and all of the amenities, we'll make sure that they are heavily equipped with all types of cleaning tools that they need.”
Brandi said The Social Campus is the largest student housing property in Starkville. She also said 98% of their residents are college students.
However, she said she’s doing everything she can to make students feel comfortable.
