COVID-19 is affecting the entire world, and soon Bay will be coming home from school. His university has decided to switch all classes for underclassmen to online, and close the resident halls except for very special cases. While this is a huge disruption for his semester, it will (hopefully) only be temporary.
But I really feel sorry for the graduating senior class. When I read the last section of the Dean’s message, I felt so sad. The senior class will not be able to spend their final weeks of collegiate life on campus with their classmates. It should be a special, once in a lifetime period of their lives, culminating in a celebration and graduation, but it has been turned upside-down by the pandemic. I understand and support the need to be cautious, but it’s still incredibly unfortunate for them. I just hope they will be able to have a graduation ceremony. 😢
