Panther Perspectives

What is the biggest lesson you will take away from the COVID-19 pandemic?

Senior Megan Blanchard

Finding things in my life that I enjoy doing and to try and continue to pursue them. I know that those affect my mental health and they are good for me. 

Freshman Andrew Durham

To never take anything for granted and to think about how easily stuff can get taken away from me like the freedom of going out and hanging out with friends. 

Junior Macy Hunter

I learned to be flexible and patient.

Freshman Will Kelly

Managing my time. I can thank the hybrid schedule for that. You have to manage everything yourself. You need to be in class on time. That’s up to you to make it to class and get on that Zoom call. You have to be the one setting the timers. 

Senior Patrick Lacey

Don’t always take for granted the simple things in life. They tend to go away a lot faster than you would think when you are not paying attention. 

Junior Libby Nellessen

I learned to appreciate having school in-person.

Senior John Paino

There are a lot of irresponsible people in the world. There has been a lot of irresponsible people doing irresponsible things that they are not supposed to be doing. 

Sophomore Connor Ritchey

Nothing. I didn’t really do anything except stay at home for stupid reasons and sleep more. 

Senior Natalie Robichaux

To just really appreciate my time. I found that I have a lot of free time that I didn’t utilize and just really went to waste…I can use all my free time and not just waste it away, actually do things that are productive. 

Sophomore Sasha Stanphill

Being more clean when I went out and came back home.
