A return to campus for Orange County college students filled with outbreaks, hard lessons

At major local colleges like Chapman University, Cal State Fullerton (CSUF) and the University of California, Irvine (UCI), students numbering in the tens of thousands are being told to come into class physically — with some varying remote learning accommodations — while differing Covid-19 data from each university gives differing pictures of student safety. … At the University of California, Irvine (UCI) — a public university with a rough estimate of 33,000 students — there were 21 active Covid-19 cases as of Sept. 3,  according to the latest data available and updated daily on the school’s virus information dashboard.
