“I’m going to be a freshman attending The Ohio State University. I’m hopeful I’ll be able to move to campus this Friday. Ohio State has mandatory COVID saliva testing when we get to campus. I hope we can be safe, healthy and still have some semblance of college. I took one class this summer online. It was challenging that I couldn’t see my prof. I hope we all get to experience college in some normal way. My brother is a sophomore at MSU, although he is living off campus this year -- cancelling all on campus classes, office hours, study groups and activities are going to have a huge impact on his year.”
