Community college classes go remote due to gas price spikes

Gas prices have jumped to a record $4.67 as a national average. That’s up 48 cents in the last month alone. In response, reports Campus Reform,

Southwest Tennessee Community College has instituted “virtual Fridays” for the summer semester in an attempt to save students and faculty pain at the pump due to record-high gas prices.

“The well-being of our students and employees is a top priority at Southwest Tennessee Community College,” a college spokesperson told Campus Reform.

“We are an engaged community with a culture of caring that understands their needs and challenges,” the spokesperson continued. “When gas prices began to escalate, we know students and employees would be significantly impacted.”

Virtual Fridays began on May 27 and will extend through Aug. 12.

According to its website, “normal operations” are scheduled to resume on Aug. 15. However, these dates may be subject to change if gas prices do not decrease.
