NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – In an effort to have classes as normal as possible, Xavier University leaders are telling unvaccinated students they can’t attend fall classes. The Vice President of Administration and the Chief of Staff Patrice Bell says unvaccinated students are getting notifications this week, “they will be notified that they do not have health clearance and that they will not be able to join us the effective end of this week,” Bell said.
“I think it’s unfair to unenroll them because they still need their education. But I can see both sides,” said sophomore Elise Tookes. “They’re trying to protect the students that they have on campus and they’re trying to make it normal for us as much as possible.”
“I feel like that in itself is crazy,” said fourth-year Kalif Brown.
