Meet COVID-19’s Freshman Class
Sarah Brown, The Chronicle of Higher Education
This year, college freshmen are navigating a semester that’s nothing like what they expected when they started applying in the fall of 2019.
On campus, many are struggling to make friends and not finding much to do, with sizes of gatherings strictly limited and extracurriculars mostly virtual. Others are taking classes remotely, even further away from the traditional undergraduate experience. Many say their mental health has taken a hit. But they're fighting to make it through.
