The Holy Cross administration announced its plans for the 2020 fall semester in an email to the student body Friday morning.
According to the email, the 2020-2021 academic year will begin on campus Aug. 17, with fall semester classes starting Aug. 24.
The faculty and staff convocation will take place starting Aug. 20. Welcome Weekend will commence from Aug. 21-23.
