SOSU ranks high in study for dealing with COVID-19

DURANT, Okla. (KXII) - A recent study showed Southeastern Oklahoma State University ranked among the top schools in the country for continuing learning through the pandemic.

The study by Educate To Career, a non-profit organization, showed SOSU in the top tier out of 1,200 schools across the county when it came to blending classroom and online classes.

SOSU President Thomas Newsom says nearly half of the students at the school already took online courses and did not miss a beat.

"With strong online programs, primarily in our graduate studies, that we were able to modify that we were able to provide that remote online learning for all of our face to face students, in a very quick and suffiecient manner. In fact, I think we did not actually miss a day of instruction on campus," Newsom said.

The school plans on having face to face classes in the fall.
