Coronavirus: Liberty University’s Jerry Falwell Jr. welcomes students back amid pandemic
Liberty University in Virginia welcomed students back to campus Monday amid criticism of its president, Jerry Falwell Jr., for the decision during the coronavirus pandemic.
More than 1,100 students returned Monday following spring break, according to Scott Lamb, a spokesman for the university in Lynchburg. Falwell said he met with many of them.
“They were talking about being glad to be back,” Falwell said in a statement Monday published by the university news service. “I was joking about how they pretty much had the whole place to themselves, and told all of them to enjoy it.”
