As we will no longer be together on campus for the remainder of the spring semester of the 2019-2020 school year, I want to offer you some words of encouragement. I want you to know that the Chronicle is still here to provide and direct you to credible information in reference to the COVID-19 virus, along with our usual content. We hope the Carlow Chronicle online will be a place where you can stay connected to the Carlow community and see familiar faces over the upcoming weeks. The Chronicle staff will be working on stories of interest to our community so follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Also, look for online articles on our blog at carlowchronicle.com and Podcast, What’s Good Carlow?
Please take care of yourselves mentally and physically. Wash your hands regularly, and practice social distancing until further notice. I know many of you may be anxious because of the shift to online format, but I’m certain you will adjust within a week. I was a cyber-school student from grades 6-12 so I am not a stranger to online classes. I encourage you to follow a set schedule like you normally would in your traditional classes. Don’t forget to take a lunch break and log off at a decent hour. I would also advise you to stay ahead if you can, so you won’t fall behind.
You are not going through this transition alone; our professors are trying to adjust with us as well and they are there to support you. We are all in this together! Try to remain positive. We are halfway through the semester! Please go to the Carlow University website and click the alert for the most recent and accurate information regarding the virus and its impact on the Carlow community.
