As with all facets of life, the college experience has been radically altered by COVID-19. World wide lockdowns has left many college campuses unsure precisely how to move forward, with many opting for a combination of Zoom courses and post-poned courses.
While a pandemic is certainly not something most schools have a clear easy game plan for, there are definitely better and worse ways to handle the current situation. Prioritizing the physical and mental health of students and staff, and arranging fair financial recompense for lost campus privileges feels like the least schools can do, but many are falling short.
In a popular Reddit thread, college students shared the worst ways their schools have handled COVID-19, and it's a definite list of what not to do.
"For those of you taking the exam in a different time zone and hence early in the morning or late at night, or in places with additional challenges (such as power cuts): we realize this situation demands a lot from you, so good luck to you in particular."
