Why does the University Administration collect Campus Covid info on a daily basis but only report it once per week to the campus community? Transmission rates of Covid render a once a week reporting frequency impotent as a means for anyone other than the administration to take decisive action. This is an unreasonable and irresponsible assumption of responsibility that needs to be reviewed and overturned. If the administration is getting data, it should be shared with the community in a timely manner.
As the semester is winding down and we’re now in finals week, The Gettysburgian asked faculty and students to reflect on the last six weeks of remote learning. Read what our community shared.

"[T]he events of the past few weeks are exactly what a liberal arts education is preparing us for: entering a rapidly-evolving situation with imperfect information, armed with the ability to think critically and adjust on the fly, to anchor our decisions to our core values, and to view times of disruption as opportunities for innovation." Ben Pontz ’20, Editor-in-Chief of The Gettysburgian, reflects on the Gettysburg College community and the road ahead.
