It’s been one year since the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Virginia. Looking back, the pandemic has changed the lives of individuals all over the world, including those in the VCU and Richmond communities.
At the beginning of March 2020, students sat in class with excitement as they discussed spring break plans. Some traveled overseas while others returned home to spend time with family. Vacations were cut short as the normal life was reimagined. The past year has brought loss and hardships — but also hope.
