ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – As vaccinations ramp up and COVID-19 numbers fall, The University of Texas Permian Basin is gearing up for the fall semester.

On Thursday the University said they are hopeful to return to a pre-COVID experience in 2021. That means more face-to-face classes, more on-campus events and additional on-campus services, according to a release.

However, UTPB acknowledged that the pandemic is not over and they could keep some safety protocols in place.

According to UTPB, they are still in the early stages of this plan.
