When a large university like the University of Southern California wants to know what it’s like to have in-person classes during a pandemic, it might reach out to other universities who have navigated reopening during a long and difficult COVID-19 season.

Emily Chung, a student at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, contacted three Furman University sophomores – Maggie Atchley, Jackson Blackman and Maddie Dresen – to get their take on reopening the campus and the changes they had to grapple with. Listen to or view the story on USC Annenberg Media, a student-led multiplatform news media organization funded by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
