While the Midwest and greater United States continue to slow to a crawl due to Coronavirus, as of Thursday morning, Olivet Nazarene University had failed to issue any updated response to its community.
Students away on Spring Break let it be known by Twitter, they were not happy. The University has yet to update its official COVID-19 Emergency Management Page since last Thursday. Spring Break started for Olivet Students last Saturday and ends March 15th.
One student suggested administrators were all but ignoring the problem:
