QUINCY (WGEM) -- After a two month winter break, Quincy University students began returning to campus in limited numbers over the weekend.

As students returned to campus, they were required to go through a check-in process before moving back in.

Freshman and football player Grant Fussell said the process was simple.

"I came in and filled out just a couple of papers for them. I came down here to the bookstore and got my COVID test to get back to practicing football," he said. "Then I got my books and I should be ready to go for this semester,"

Student Development Vice President Christine Tracy said the check-in process is all about making the students feel comfortable.

"Then we gave students options, so for this weekend to return they could pick the time that works for them and the day that works for them," she said. "Then they can decide, are they more comfortable with being tested here or if they're more comfortable at home being tested by their doctor."

Fussell said he appreciates the QU staff for going above and beyond.

"In a time like this, these things are really important to be organized, you can have these wherever you go," he said. "If they're not organized and if they're not done right it really doesn't matter but they did an excellent job here today and I cannot thank them enough for what they do."

QU officials said they will continue COVID-19 testing throughout the semester to keep students and staff safe.
