Colleges Against COVID-19
Management students at Providence College created a two-minute video — featuring their classmates and friends from colleges across the country — to encourage young adults to take seriously warnings about the coronavirus. This video was posted on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube.
Everyone’s life has drastically changed since the world entered a pandemic from COVID-19. The things every college student took for granted like athletics, graduation, in person classes, and dinner in dining hall was suddenly all taken away from us. This video is a message from college students to college students expressing the importance of practicing social distancing. Practicing social distancing is something that can save a person who is more susceptible to disease than you are. We are staying home to save the lives of our parents and grandparents. This time is something no one has ever experiences before and it is hard for young adults to accept since they feel they are wasting away their college time. I think it is important to preserve this video because it expresses the unity of college students everyone coming together during this pandemic. I would want someone to notice the transition from the beginning of this video of the college boy saying nothing is going to stop him from partying to the rest of the video of college kids expressing the importance of staying home to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 deaths.
