Being Back on Campus Feels Right

Abby Bender’s (Class of 2021) senior year certainly isn’t what she expected, but being back on campus feels right. “It is a weird experience having my senior year during a pandemic. I am fortunate to be able to live in an apartment with my friend to keep me sane, but I love seeing my friends in passing or having lunch with people. Even being at work feels so refreshing. I’m glad Beloit is being safe so I can be here for my final year.” Read more about Abby’s Beloit experience.
