Important Notes (Covid-19)

We are aware that education, at all levels, has been significantly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether it leads to homeschooling for elementary students, the wearing of masks and limitations on speaking to each other or playing without masks for young students, or to the university world for the new student, existing students, and ones wishing to pursue higher education, all have been deeply affected.

For students entering, the university already, or moving forward with their university careers, much has changed. Originally, students did not have the chance in many cases to earn a final mark to contribute to their applications. Instead, schools submitted guesstimates based on past performance.

More importantly, applicants could not participate in the graduation rituals, and other rites of passage valued for their contribution to an individual’s sense of self and of achievement.  Additionally, their relationships to others of their peers, as well as, in many cases, the opportunity to live away from home for the first time was snatched away. For most people, their university and college days are amongst the most powerful elements in what they consider to be their grown-up selves.

Our heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by Covid-19. We recognize that this has been difficult for all of us and so we will try our best to cover topics that will serve the student population as much as we can.
