Transition away from campus presents new challenges

PULLMAN, WASH – As Thanksgiving break nears, students across the palouse must prepare for change. Students are tasked to choose either staying away from their families for the holidays, or staying away from their new homes until the new semester starts.

The transition to online classes will go smoother for some than others. Online classes are common place at WSU but leaving Pullman will present a new challenge. College is usually an experience away from one’s family, sophomore elementary education major, Kelsie Hinton said that she is glad to have her independence in Pullman.

“Although I haven’t been seeing many people,  it’s been nice having my own space and being able to do work when I need to.”

Although it will be a tough transition, it will slow the spread of the coronavirus on the palouse.
