Alumni Q&A: Vicki Ritchie

The oldest of three and a first-generation college student, Vicki (Glaser) Ritchie knew that she would have to work hard to pay for college on her own – but she also knew it was worth it. When she left Howards Grove High School and stepped onto UW-Green Bay’s Sheboygan Campus for her first year she didn’t realize the doors that she had just opened for herself.

Transitioning to Online Learning

Almost all, if not all students have been transitioning to online classes. I know some people prefer online learning for its flexibility but for me, it’s been devastating. It’s okay to be upset about your classes moving online. For some of us college students, we attended a university because we wanted in-person learning for our degrees. We lived in the dorms to get away from home and live a social lifestyle with our friends. And before we knew it, we attended our last lectures and were asked to move out as soon as possible.

In a Time of Uncertainty

We’re in a time where we are asked to stay far apart, but it’s also a time where we need to be closer than ever. Virtually at least. We’ve been hearing the phrase, “This is our new normal,” a lot lately. This is our new normal, for now, and some of us have been in denial about it. Some moments I’ve been having so much fun that I appreciate it and miss it before it’s over. Other times I have been reminded of memories that I’ve taken for granted. I am sure we all have. But never did I think I would be asked to imagine or LIVE a day where even going to the gym, the park or a friend’s house for a few hours would be taken for granted. Everyday casual activities are being limited in a matter of minutes leaving us bored at home. We took something as simple as a human touch for granted. Continue reading In a Time of Uncertainty

Keep Your Connections

Hello, fellow seniors and welcome to the most uncertain time for education in modern history. 

 

I can only imagine that at first, many of you saw self-quarantining as an extended spring break – a time where you get to rule the house when mom or dad wasn’t home, sleep as long as you’d like and binge the latest Netflix craze (Tiger King, anyone?). I’m speaking from experience; that’s exactly what I’m doing as a 26-year-old senior in college. Weeks ago, when this virus first became relevant to the USA, we didn’t take it as seriously as we should have. Now as a pandemic, it’s reshaping how humanity views each other, both as individuals and on a global scale.
