Documenting the Camel Experience






It's painful to see classes that were my favorite not translate well online.

New York, United States


Did you change your spring break plans because of the virus? From what to what?

How did you feel when you were informed the remainder of the semester would be held online?
Not surprised initially, seemed like the right response. Didn't really set in until move out day that we really weren't coming back.

Where are you living for the rest of the semester? How did you feel about leaving campus? Or what's it like remaining on campus?
Im living at home. I felt sad and numb to leave campus and say goodbye to friends.

What has been your experience with moving classes online? What's good? What's not so good?
My experience has been frustrating. It's painful to see classes that were my favorite not translate well online. My professors have been very accommodating and understanding.

How has the virus (and the precautions taken to prevent it spreading) impacted your daily life?
I'm at the epicenter of the virus, so I don't leave the house except to drive or to take a short bike ride, always wearing a mask. I clean everything that enters the house.

How worried are you about getting the virus?

Do you know anyone who has gotten COVID-19?

Are you staying in? What are you doing to pass the time?
Yoga, watching shows, HW, taking an extra class online, internships

Are you going out? Where do you go and what is it like?
Not really. I live near a park but it's very crowded, so I try to not go at peak times.

What is giving you hope and/or strength right now?
The sun! Community! This can't last forever

Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about what you're feeling or experiencing right now?
