After a long while the Purchase campus is open for business! New and returning students comment on their first week back to class on campus.
“My first week is actually going rather well, I'm meeting a lot of new people everyone is very open,” said Jakob Ferrara. “It’s just very nice to meet people and kind of be on the same page as everyone else.”
“I met a lot of cool people,” Stephanie Ilagorre said, “I'm really excited, but also nervous about the workload.”
Student Emily Christ said, "It's surreal. I'm very excited. I'm also really worried it's not going to last."
Gwin Mosher describes the first week as "excited, nervous and sweaty.”
"I feel different. I'm happy to be back but I'm all online and I wish I had more in person things to go to."
“At first I was very overwhelmed,” said Kaitlyn Irby, “but now that the week is coming to an end and I’ve experienced it, I feel like everything is falling into place.”
“This first week of school has been a little stressful,” Daniella Montedoro said, “but the community here is so supportive and welcoming that classes just felt like home here.”
