“At first, I was upset with the stay-at-home orders and wondering how classes would be handled. I was also distraught because of all the job opportunities lost now that my favorite engineering organization, NSBE, can no longer attend nationals. But I have received good news from ECU CET career fair and was offered full-time employment after graduation.
“Now I am content studying at home and visiting my family with the extra free time I have. Ten days till graduation!”
