Having been a Music major for over three years now, I can vouch for how important it is to be on-campus for music-related obligations. From ensemble rehearsals to in-person classes to finding a practice room on-campus to work in for hours on end, the daily lives of students in departments that require an abundance of in-person activity are impacted this school year because of the presence of Covid-19.
