English major Jina Park published an essay in GW Hatchet in which she details how GW prepared her for the unexpected final semester of her college career due to the coronavirus situation. Jina is currently taking the Critical Theory seminar which explores many issues related to the current crisis.
In her essay, Jina shared tips on how to manage stress: “Being in college allowed me to learn how to become responsible and explore my interests at once. My experiences in college helped prepare me for graduating in an uncertain time and finishing my senior year from home.”
She concluded with an optimistic tone by saying that “senior year might be practically over, but I still have experiences to look forward to. College was cut short but that does not mean I cannot prepare for the future as well.”
