Cierra Noffke, Culture Editor • November 14, 2020
Because of the way this year’s Fall 2020 Academic Schedule is structured, all final exams administered after Thanksgiving Break are required to be online. This means that it likely when students go home for Thanksgiving, they’ll stay off-campus until classes resume in January.

The best comedy specials to watch on Netflix
Meredith Stogner, Contributing Writer • October 25, 2020

Cierra Noffke, Culture Editor • October 6, 2020
Working remotely means students must voluntarily organize their many conflicting schedules from home, and because of the stressful nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and online classes in general, college students are very, very stressed out right now. Though, this may not be news to you.  I asked the editorial board of The Seahawk how each of them has personally handled remote learning and stress during the past few months.
