Messages to our younger selves

Story/Video posted April 13, 2020 in Covid-19 by Ethan Cook.


Penn State students are now spending the rest of the 2019-20 school year at home instead of back at school due to the outbreak of the corona virus. Penn State is conducting classes online for the remainder of this semester and some students were not too pleased about it.

Many of these students have learned that this virus has a major effect on not only people in other countries but also in the United States. They also learned that the virus can spread very fast and it can affect anybody that can come into contact with it. These students have shared stories and advice for their younger selves from a couple of weeks ago to share what they did not know and what they wish they knew and how to handle the spread of the corona virus.

A lot of these students are seniors and they were very upset about not getting a normal college graduation and that their senior year was cut short due to the spread of the virus.
