Seniors prepare for graduation, leaving SU in a post-pandemic world
SU seniors prepare for post-pandemic world
With the Class of 2022’s graduation just days away, seniors are preparing to embark on their next journey as post-graduates in a post-pandemic world.
Whether their futures lead them near or far from Syracuse, over the past two years at SU, graduates have adapted to the ever changing conditions of the pandemic. From fully remote learning in spring 2020, to hybrid class in fall of 2020, to moving fully in-person for the 2021-2022 academic year, students have been pushed academically, socially, mentally, physically and professionally.
For undergraduate seniors in particular, the pandemic nearly sliced their college experience in half. When COVID-19 hit in the spring semester of their sophomore year, students had been on campus for nearly two years, immersing themselves in their studies and extracurriculars and acclimating themselves into the University. This puts the class in a unique position, having known what college was like pre-COVID.
