As a college student, coronavirus is having a direct impact on your everyday life. Some students have been able to return to campus only to be sent back because of an upsurge in cases. Some have been virtual all year. And some students are back to school, but not back on campus.
In this Odyssey template, you'll be covering what it's like being a student at your college or university during the COVID-19 pandemic.

- What has your experience been like on campus?
- Do you feel safe being back at school?
- Are students and faculty wearing masks? (Include any official policy set by university?
- Are students and faculty social distancing?
- Have there been events off-campus where masks and social distancing aren't being used and implemented?
- What do students have to say about COVID-19 and being back on campus? (Ask 2–4 people about their experience, quote them in the article.)
- How has your educational experience been since starting back?
- Do you think your university will shut down again, or make it through the semester?
