Most readers of this magazine remember the springtime excitement of senior year. As the campus erupted in blossoms and green, the Mary Washington friends you’d soon leave became more precious, and the anticipation of commencement grew.
Dear Class of 2020, in March our world changed. Your Mary Washington plans were upended, and we feel for you. Someday, you’ll have stories to tell of how this year unfolded, stories of how you spent the end of the semester away from campus managing online classes and nurturing long-distance connections with friends and professors. You’ll have the memories of how you braved this crisis. For now, know that you are in the hearts of all of the Mary Washington family.
And to all readers, stay strong – we can do this.
