Around a year ago, UCSB students received news that they must return back home for the remainder of the 2020 winter quarter and anticipate a transition into remote learning for the spring quarter. Since then, the COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the entire world and placed many personal, financial, and academic stressors on students. The pandemic has created many challenges on students, but has also allowed many to grow and learn ways to cope with these hardships. In this newsletter, the MHP team will discuss how they’ve overcome their hardest challenges and reflect on their biggest learning experiences during the pandemic.
