COVID-19 has survived a trip around the sun. Although the pandemic has impacted daily lives for an entire year, the TJ community has skillfully adapted. TJ students and staff, including Dr. Bonitatibus, reflect on quarantine and how this past year—a year of uncertainty and stress—has transformed them. In this COVID-19 realm, the emphasis on social networking, passion pursuing, and administrative planning is greater than ever. Even with the pandemic obligating friends and family apart, the TJ community continues to hold tight to hopes for a more fruitful year.
