    Howdy Everyone, 

    I hope everyone is staying safe in the uncertain times ahead. For us students, I have heard from around the country things such as graduations being cancelled, classes leaving the classroom and new grading systems being adapted. As aspiring civil engineers, our affinity to want to help with problems facing our civilization is blaring. So let us try and help each other by sharing these experiences within our educational communities to see if there are ways our individual programs could be aided in these times.

    Question: How has Covid-19 influenced your college experience so far? Furthermore, how are you managing theses changes to your school schedule?

    My daily life has changed tremendously. Instead of going to work at Keysight Technologies, I am working from home which is challenging due to me still living at home with my family. My whole family is off work and I am the only one working from home. This has also had an impact on my course work because my college has decided to move everything to online. I am also taking a lab class so the labs are canceled but the lectures are remote.

    This has also impacted my US Army Corps of Engineers because I have to wait to go on jobsites like I have been due to the CDC regulations. Although, the Army Corps of Engineers have been in touch with me and are helping me get through this tough time as well as keeping me updated on projects they are wanting to take me to see.
