Summer is over for Clark College students, but the campus was nearly deserted Monday as the community college continued its third quarter of remote learning.

Clark College was early in its decision to keep classes virtual through the fall, announcing its plan to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus in April.

The pandemic has taken its toll on Clark College, leading to significant drops in enrollment and $5.5 million in budget cuts.

Spokeswoman Kelly Love said the college faces continued hits to enrollment — and in turn, its budget — this fall. Early numbers suggest full-time enrollment has dropped by 10 to 13 percent from last fall’s 7,473 students.
