Over an eight-day stretch, students at West Virginia State University, a small historically Black college, were given staggered, two-hour time slots to unload belongings into their residence halls, then were sent home until the start of the fall semester on August 10.

At N.C. State, the university usually houses 10,000 students but will have 6,700 on its Raleigh campus this fall, said Chancellor Randy Woodson.

Elon University in North Carolina mailed testing kits to all 7,000 students ahead of their arrival in a few weeks.

North Carolina State University staggered the return of its students over 10 days and welcomed the first 900 students to campus, where they were greeted Friday by socially distant volunteers donning masks and face shields.

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA - The first wave of college students returning to their dorms aren't finding the typical mobs of students and parents.
