This year has been unlike any other. 

Events went virtual. Residence halls were turned into quarantine and isolation quarters. Faculty adapted their courses to a hybrid model. Students learned through a screen. Staff worked tirelessly to uphold a “culture of care” with a host of safety protocols and ever-changing guidelines.

And through it all, Spartans have remained resilient during this unprecedented time in the University’s history.

But how will UNC Greensboro’s response to the pandemic be remembered?

In this documentary, five members of the Spartan community chronicle the emotional rollercoaster that was the first academic year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, from the very first campus message to the vaccination rollout, and every struggle and success in between.
