    I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for keeping us safe on the Hill this fall. Our circumstances this semester required sacrifice on everyone’s part in order to maintain a safe and healthy campus community. I am sure there were days when you were just at your wits’ end with how COVID-19 was impacting your life at McDaniel, yet you pushed through and did the right thing. I am grateful beyond words and so appreciative for all of you.

Whatever you’re feeling right now, it’s an unusual semester--and you’re not alone. At the same time, it is my sincere belief that out of times of great pressure, great innovation is born.

    At some point after you have closed out the spring 2020 semester, take a few moments to consider all the obstacles you overcame this semester. I hope you feel a sense of pride in all you have accomplished no matter how great or how seemingly ordinary. And if the online portion of the semester posed some obstacles that you could not overcome, please remember that at some moment in the future you will probably be faced with a similar challenge and you will overcome it and realize that this semester’s struggles were the building blocks for your future success.

    This semester you have certainly been hit with a lot and still kept moving forward. Your accomplishments may not look as you expected them to or be celebrated as you thought they would, but they are all still successes and I hope you view them in that spirit.

    While it may not feel like it for some, we ARE in the home stretch of the semester. The information in this week’s newsletter is meant to help you wrap up what has been a one-of-a-kind semester. I highly recommend viewing Gerard Grigsby’s self-care video – every time I watch it I laugh a little harder (oops, too close). For those of you who don’t know Gerard – he is one of McDaniel’s counselors in the Wellness Center. Stay tuned for the unveiling of my amazingly awesome face mask next week … you’re going to be jealous!

    I don’t want to sound too corny but I miss seeing you throughout the day as I am accustomed to doing. This week I ask everyone to participate in at least one virtual event, panel, or activity that is being offered and make sure you see some friends and acquaintances that you have not seen in a couple of weeks. I’m not the only one who misses seeing you … lots of us do. So don’t be surprised if you get a phone call this week from a member of the Academic and Campus Life staff checking in with you to see how you are doing and hear a little about what is working well for you.
