The time has finally come! The Quad has opened its glorious gates to welcome hundreds of new faces, including Jeremy from New Jersey, Lydia from England, and COVID-19 from all over the world! This past weekend, UTB sat down with COVID-19 to talk about their experiences so far living on campus with the first years.
“I mean, I can hardly contain myself. I’ve been literally counting down the days until I can live in the Quad. I was mainly kickin’ it off-campus this semester, but it’s just not the same. I didn’t get the full college experience of spreading into dorms and causing mass quarantines, you know?”
COVID-19 is reportedly already super popular amongst the first-year crowd. They've been trying to meet as many new faces as possible, which isn’t as easy as you’d think.
“I saw a ton of these people in Mexico around March, I think? And there’s a group of girls somewhere from New York, and we met up over the summer at their 'socially distanced' outdoor picnic," COVID-19 said with a wink.
COVID-19 made an appearance in a few Riepe halls last week, but has been spending the bulk of their time with the first floor of Franklin in Fisher-Hassenfeld.
“There’s this one hall, and we’ve all gotten so close. I mean that literally — we were all within like, three feet of each other. It was amazing. They were hosting a dorm party, so obviously I had to go. I think I got to interact with everyone there. To put it simply, I was hit. I don’t want to brag or anything, but literally none of them are immune to my charm — or my disease!”
