Boredom Busters While in Quarantine
We are incredibly proud of how our campus has come together this fall to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. This has required many of us to go into quarantine for two weeks if we've come into contact with COVID-positive people. We know that quarantines will help to protect our campus community, but we also acknowledge that they can be isolating and challenging.
