In Support of PAC Students

This time has been extremely challenging, and we are doing our best to provide supportive physical activity class options for our students.

Physical Activity Course (PAC) Program

We believe your education and well-being are paramount, and we also know that individuals are concerned and interested in what precautions we are taking to support our in-seat instruction moving forward.

As with everything, things may change, but based on Oregon State University’s reopening plan, we are using guidelines created by the governor’s office and the Oregon Health Authority.



To give you an idea of the planning and precautions we are taking, we are:

  • Placing strict parameters on all classes we will deliver in person as well as increasing our daily cleaning.
  • Holding classes outdoors to help prevent possible transmission and holding most classes in large gymnasiums.
  • Requiring face covering use during participation and physical distancing protocols greater than 6ft.
  • Changing the design of certain classes to accommodate for these parameters.
  • Eliminating shared equipment use, moving toward each student getting their designated equipment for class.
  • Created traffic flow directions throughout our buildings.



In addition, we have selected several courses to deliver remotely and will offer Ecampus courses.



However, with all the planning and preparation we have done, we will not be able to deliver several types of courses because of the nature of their participation.

We have decided to postpone all social dance, contact sports and sports that share a joint piece of equipment until we are able to be in close physical contact again.
