My Freshman Year of College in COVID-19

FLASHBACK TO MARCH 2020. I remember watching Kansas Governor Laura Kelly announce the closure of Kansas Schools due to COVID-19. I knew this would alter my plans to attend Kansas State University in the fall in a formal manner.

Thankfully, Kansas State allowed students to live on campus, but the majority of classes would remain virtual. As I was about to endure the biggest transition of my life, from home to college, the world around me was also transitioning faster than it ever has before.
