When the history of the pandemic of 2020-21 is written, chapters will be devoted to the students who found themselves in the middle of it. These will include college students, who found modalities shifting and changing as conditions and regulations changed around them. The fact that so many students persevered and not only survived the challenges, but did so while performing at exceptional levels of academic performance, is remarkable.

As Oregon Coast Community College prepares a return to “normalcy” with a largely on-campus, lively, in-person fall term, it once again tips its cap to the students who stuck it out in the academic year just ended, despite the uncertainty and difficulty that defined the year.
