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

They didn’t change and I took a planned trip

How did you feel when you were informed the remainder of the semester would be held online?

I felt really disappointed because I wouldn’t be able to do a lot of the things that were supposed to mark the end of my college career.

Where will you be living while courses are held online? Is this a change from usual?

I’ll be living at home in Grapevine Texas.

What has been your experience with moving classes online? What’s good? What’s not so good?

Its been okay. Some of my more hands on classes have had to change what they do completely. On the other hand I am able to structure my time more fluidly.

How has the virus (and the precautions taken to prevent it spreading) impacted your daily life?

My parents are in high risk categories so I have had to completely quarantine with them. I can’t see old friends that are home right now as well and I have had to pickup more housework.

How worried are you about getting the virus?

I’m only worried that I will give it to my parents which would be awful.

Do you know anyone who has gotten COVID-19?


Are you staying in? What are you doing to pass the time?

I have been completely quarantined. I do lots of yard work at my house and or my neighbors.

Are you going out? Where do you go and what is it like?

No I can’t go out.

What is giving you hope and/or strength right now?

The idea that soon I will graduate.
