Classification: Senior

Major: Banking and Finance

Response: “The campus is dead quiet, and people are avoiding others which is expected. The campus doesn’t show the fear and panic that many students may feel from being laid off work, but the stillness reveals a peace that can be held. A peace to know that we can control something like doing schoolwork and checking up on our friends if they are in need.”
