Well, It Wasn’t the Update I Wanted. But...

Not long ago, we received news that the Spring 2021 semester would be mostly online, with some supplemental programming on campus. The update left me with a level of heartbreak I cannot fully express. As a senior, it was hard enough not to be able to experience my last dall in...
