AMHERST, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- UMass Amherst reports that it is planning to return to a full campus for the fall 2021 semester.

That's after the majority of the fall 2020 and spring 2021 have been done virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The university said they expect to have an emphasis on face-to-face instruction, full residence halls, and a full college experience.

UMass said it will be resuming on campus tours on April 20.
