Well. That was... something.
It has been a wild few days. You're probably experiencing a wide range of emotions. We've had several students in our office who are sad, angry, and confused. Like they've been robbed of their experience. We get it.
Asking you to press "pause" on your first-year in college is a huge bummer, but please know that it's not over.
A learning curve is ahead for all of us. We'll need to find new ways to learn online and maintain our friendships. Keep up with your group texting threads-- it's going to help you keep a sense of normalcy during all of this. And if you're lucky, you'll get daily snaps of your roommate's family dog.
Your presence on our campus will be missed while we try to support you from afar. We'll miss you studying in the lounges, laughing in the dining halls, and filling our classrooms. And if you're opting to stay on campus, come visit us (our administrative offices will remain open).
Stay healthy and keep your head up. We are patiently waiting for this to blow over so you can come back.
