Learning Against the Odds

Here at Nicholls State University, we like to create a homey feeling for everyone that steps foot on our campus. That is because when you are here, you are family. And family takes care of each other. Never has that been more true than 2020 as the world grappled with COVID-19. Though the semester was markedly different ­— HyFlex classes, no Colonels athletics or campus events — we were able to remain in a mostly in-person format because of our family. Because we kept each other safe by masking up, washing our hands and staying socially distanced. And while it was different, it remains special. Because it was for family.
