Starting college can be challenging, but starting college during a global pandemic can feel next to impossible. For Vivian Soza, Edward Zhang, An Ha, and Mehak Verma, making the transition from high school to college has not been an easy one. All four say that COVID-19 has not only altered their college experience, but it has also affected them personally. They each share a feeling of isolation and a need to get back on campus. Throughout their struggles they remain hopefull and understand that the pandemic is only temporary.
