The Unexpected Closure of Saint Anselm College

Description (Dublin Core)

These were a sequence of emails I received as my college prepared to shut down on March 13th, 2020. This created an immense amount of stress and chaos for myself, my family, and my friends. We were concerned about being isolated on campus away from our families during such a scary, life changing time. The emails embody the idea that we would be able to remain in person, continuing our education in a normal way. This indicated that we truly did not understand the full complexity and severity of the issue. There was a lot of chaos and uncertainty during the weekend of the 3/13/2020-3/14/2020. Earlier in the week, a trusted professor indicated to us that it was only a 50% chance we would actually be sent home so we were absolutely shocked at the decisions.
