University students respond to COVID on campus

Students at Georgia State University and Kennesaw State have had their whole semester shaken up due to COVID-19. With most classes shifting to online rather than in-person, students are facing new concerns and challenges. One of those concerns is safety, and GSU has tried to alleviate those concerns by handing out masks, having hand sanitizer around the campus and social distancing guidelines in the library and dining hall. 

Another challenge students have faced is that COVID-19 has limited their social lives to just phone calls and text since they have been unable to meet new people on campus due to safety precautions. While some students feel as though the universities have done the best job it can in keeping them safe to this point, some feel as if more can be done and question whether the campus should even be open.
