COVID-19 Impact on EWU Seniors

The COVID-19 has greatly impacted Eastern Washington University. The University has recently closed down all of the buildings on campus and has also moved all EWU coursework to an online format for the remainder of the academic year. This means that there will be no in-person classes for spring quarter.

The COVID-19 virus has taken away many seniors last quarter of college while also bringing the likelihood of the senior’s graduation commencement being canceled. According to, universities must plan for digital and distance learning (which has already cane into play). All of this is happening because of the pandemic that has been established because of this horrible virus.

I am one of these seniors that has been affected. I do not believe there is one solution to all of this. I do believe that social-distancing and online learning will help this, but it will take a vaccine to make it all go away. I believe practicing these things will lead to less cases of the virus along with life going back to normal quicker. This could also lead to people missing out on events and also missing work.
