From The Editor – This semester is weird. Help us by sharing.

In college, I received more than just a fair share of high school, “First Day” songs and dances. But, all things considered, no first day – or even a week – can be measured until 2021.

They are students at Ohio University come back Power to all parts that are going on in different modes. While some courses are being taught in person or in mixed format, some courses remain online, with or without synchronization. Most students have a mix of those metaphors, which means they all walk around the campus.

Living out of campus last year allowed me to see how empty the campus was during a major cholera epidemic. Now the campus is full of energy and seeing students again is fun and unpredictable. The lines in the coffee shops are long, the bakery elevators are congested, and the dining hall’s reserve is extended. While there may be some symptoms when everyone returns, it is good to see some signs of life before the epidemic returns, such as hugging friends or obstacles that many students see around campus.

But it is also strange. Very strange. Most high school students did not receive physical education for more than a year. For all others, the feeling of being a New Year student Everything that is lost in the yard is very real. Both junior and high school students have a full year of campus experience. In the meantime, what does it mean for fresh students to be in college not only during the transition but also during the epidemic?

Class is the second week, but some things still feel out of place. We are all physically struggling to live in the day-to-day running of a human college, and we are entering the gates with stickers saying, “Just get out.” Although they have returned to their “normal state,” they feel that very few things are normal.

That is the right feeling Post He is here to report.

Let’s write these stories together.
