Aoki Lee Simmons will not be returning to the Harvard University campus after Spring Break. The daughter of Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee Simmons will join other students in completing courses online because of the coronavirus, which is now classified as a pandemic.
Harvard University gave students until Sunday, March 15, 2020, to move out of the first-year dorms. Residents were advised in a schoolwide statement to take all of their belongings and to not make plans to return to the campus until further notice.
“Students should treat the Sunday move-out like an ordinary May move-out and remove all of their belongings from their suite,” the university shared in a FAQs article created for students. “The University is still working on the details for what will happen with student charges,” Harvard said in reference to payments for room and board. “Please be patient as this will take some time and the priority is getting students home safely,” the university wrote.
Harvard University joined other Ivy League schools in offering courses online after the spread of coronavirus continued to grow. Princeton University advised students to refrain from returning to campus after Spring Break ended. Harvard, however, is the first school to order students to move out of their dorm rooms and not return until further notice.
Aoki Lee Simmons received her acceptance letter from Harvard University last year. The young scholar began her Freshman year at the Ivy League school in the fall. In addition to attending school, Aoki also helps her older sister, Ming Lee Simmons, with the revitalization of Baby Phat. Aoki focuses on the brand’s sustainability, which is why Baby Phat is an online-based company. “Selling Baby Phat direct-to-consumer through our website plays a big part in the sustainability conversation,” Aoki said during an interview last year.
