Being a student in the Class of 2020
During the Summer of 2020, like many other students, I found myself completing my Human Geography degree at the height of a national lockdown.
Being a student in this period brought a unique set of challenges that came alongside the worries and uncertainty surrounding the pandemic.
Each of us had to adjust to a whole different university experience with online learning, completing finals virtually, and even socialising with friends on “zoom quizzes”.
Although having to write my dissertation in isolation was completely overwhelming, I look back on this as one of my greatest achievements.
With our social lives put on hold, it is fair to say that our (highly anticipated) final year celebrations were non-existent. That is why it has meant so much that the University of Hull was committed to hosting the graduation ceremonies that we all deserved.
