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.

As the Copy Editor, what are your duties and responsibilities? Give us a look into your day-to-day life. “As the Copy Editor, writers and editors send me an article they want to publish before it actually goes up on The Seahawk. Usually, writers do most of the editing, but I go in and check that there are no AP formatting errors and see if anything needs to be changed. If it’s scheduled to go up on the website I’ll update it, but if not I’ll go ahead and publish it.”

It’s been a great addition to my college experience especially because it has given me something to do every single week. I’ve met a lot of people and created friendships with people who enjoy the same types of things I do. I’ve had the chance to do things I never would have experienced.
