From remote learning to virtual club meetings, Columbian College students are approaching an unprecedented semester with optimism, determination and a commitment to making the most of new experiences. Students like econ major Madeline Aguirre share their stories of how they are approaching the challenges that COVID-19 brings.
“In the spring, when we found out that we would be going virtual mid-semester, I was quite panicked and had to figure out quickly how to convert my classes from being in-person to remote,” said Dr. Foster, associate professor of economics. “But by the end of the semester I came away wondering: ‘Why wasn’t I doing some of this before?' It made the class so much better.”
