Odyssey Wants To Know How COVID-19 Is Impacting Your College Experience

Going back to school looks different this year, as every university is handling COVID-19 differently.

A student at Michigan State University is receiving a coronavirus test.

As a college student, coronavirus is having a direct impact on your everyday life. Some students have been able to return to campus only to be sent back because of an upsurge in cases. Some have been virtual all year. And some students are back to school, but not back on campus.

In this Odyssey template, you'll be covering what it's like being a student at your college or university during the COVID-19 pandemic.

BEGIN TEMPLATE

Headline:

I'm A Student At XXXX [University] And COVID-19 Has Been [Your Experience]

Introduction:

Start your piece with some basic identifying information — what school you go to, how long classes have been in session, how classes are being run currently, and any data your school has active cases on campus.

Then, you can answer any of these questions either in listicle format or in paragraph format.

  1. Are you living on campus or off campus?
  2. What has your experience been like on campus?
  3. Do you feel safe being back at school?
  4. Are students and faculty wearing masks? (Include any official policy set by university?
  5. Are students and faculty social distancing?
  6. Have there been events off-campus where masks and social distancing aren't being used and implemented?
  7. What do students have to say about COVID-19 and being back on campus? (Ask 2–4 people about their experience, quote them in the article.)
  8. How has your educational experience been since starting back?
  9. Do you think your university will shut down again, or make it through the semester?

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
