We also wanted to take this opportunity to take a trip down memory lane and give you a visual reminder of exactly where we were at the beginning of the pandemic. Together, in our theme of community and connection, our staff and students created this gem of a video during peak lockdown 1.0. It may bring back conflicting emotions, but it’s also an opportunity to reflect on the years that were and how far we have come since then.
