Claflin Students Focus on Academics, Virtual Learning and Career Goals Despite COVID-19 Disruption
Most of the nation’s colleges and universities have begun classes for the 2020 fall semester with an extensive use of hybrid and virtual learning and teaching platforms, due to the COVI-19. Despite myriad disruptions, classes at Claflin started in August and nearly 400 freshmen, transfers, and returning students checked into the University’s residence halls in September.

Freshmen Nyasia Argrow (left), a biology major from Orangeburg, S.C.; Justice Bell (right), a Charlotte, N.C. native majoring in biochemistry; and Noah Thomas (not pictured), an African-American Studies major from Moncks Corner, S.C., are among the outstanding scholars in the Class of 2024 who represent Claflin’s next generation of globally-engaged visionary leaders. All three received prestigious scholarships and are members of the Alice Carson Tisdale Honors College. Additionally, Argrow and Bell are Presidential Scholars, the highest university scholarship awarded to an incoming freshman. MORE
