Our Essay Contest
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of people in every corner of the world. From social distancing to remote education and working from home the daily lives of so many have changed since the pandemic began.
Background On COVID-19
In March 2020, COVID-19 began to spread in the United States, which lead to the closures of schools and businesses, cancelled sports seasons, and remote work among other things. People begin to wear masks and social distance. Fast forward 14 months to vaccinations, businesses reopening at higher capacity, and the possibility of a return to the “new normal”.
Using your personal experience as a student living through a pandemic, what long term impacts will social distancing have on the overall culture of college students? What positive and negative changes can students expect to see when it comes to social interactions on campuses in the future? If social distancing, mask wearing and online events becomes the campus culture, is that good or bad? And why?
