For the Spring 2020 semester, all UBTS students attended classes online. No in-person instruction was allowed. While this format allowed more time for virtual mentoring, the loss of personal contact with the UBTS faculty, mentors, classmates and friends was acutely felt.

With the return of in-person classes in the Fall semester – conducted in “bubble” cohorts with social distancing and other safety measures – students reaped many benefits. In this video, two students describe why they value in-person learning and fellowship and the impact of their studies on them personally and in their churches.
