The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way that billions of people around the world are accustomed to living. With the introduction of various measures designed to keep us safe, we were all left wondering what impacts the lockdowns, quarantines, and social distancing would have on our mental health.
recently completed my undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph as fourth year student, this past winter. I find myself frequently reflecting on the ways I engage in post-secondary school in the years prior to COVID and this particular year where I attended my classes remotely.

The Coronavirus took us by surprise when we first heard about it earlier this year. Our way of life has drastically changed, and it may be difficult to cope with the new scenario we have been placed in.
