What has become a global catchphrase as the world adapts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 rings especially true in the Columbia College community. We have watched faculty and students quickly adapt to virtual learning, families navigate at-home orders and friends stand up in support of their neighbors. We share in the sadness of missed commencements, being separated from those we love and the uncertainty of what things will look like in the future. Throughout the spring, we have shared personal experiences on CC Connected, the college’s blog, and found a common thread among the chaos – our commitment is stronger than ever as we continue to find our way through this most unexpected time.
