January 2020: Spring Semester begins at Pitt. Underclassmen are settling into campus life. They are getting a feel for Oakland and what it has to offer, finding clubs and organizations that are a good fit and generally finding their place in the Pitt community. Upperclassmen are back in their comfort zone. They are starting clubs and running organizations and setting the tone for the Pitt community overall.
Then the pandemic. Everything changes and the community shuts down.
