By Sophia Yakumithis I’ve been taking my classes entirely remotely and let me tell you: it’s so not my speed. I have a difficult enough time sitting still in class.

By Katrina Liu After about a month of online classes, I can assuredly say that it isn’t for me. I miss being in a university setting. I miss walking along Commonwealth Avenue.
