COVID-19 and the impact on FSU’s campus culture

COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed the course of university life for the time being. FSU’s very enticing college experience has taken a back seat during the global pandemic. There has been a marked shift in the classic college atmosphere, which has changed how students function on a daily basis.

While college is meant to be an exciting period in a young adult’s life, the effects of COVID-19 have led to an unexpected turnaround in events. Many students have struggled in ways related to financial instability, lack of emotional support, and impaired academic retention.

Student engagement on campus has also received a hit. The once pulsating community of FSU students has had its light dimmed by virtual programming.

“COVID-19 has really changed what commitment means to me, in that various entities, especially on campus, have unfortunately taken a nose dive into their involvement … The Center for Leadership and Social Change was a beacon for students when I came in my first year and it served as such a happy place for those seeking community engagement and change, “said Samantha Gomez, director of special events at the Askew Student Life Center.
