Lafayette, La. - As the covid-19 vaccine continues to roll-out, one question that has been raised is if colleges and universities will eventually require students to get vaccinated.

Officials at UL-Lafayette said they have not considered the thought at this time and are focused on ensuring the spring semester runs smoothly.

However, I spoke with several students on how they'd feel if the university did eventually require it.
