Concordia students for a consecutive year have celebrated Easter during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the pandemic has been around for over a year, many students have found ways to celebrate Easter in an alternative fashion.
Concordia freshman Amy Nguyen decided to stay on-campus with her two out-of-state roommates for Easter break.
“I went to church, and then came back to the dorms and went to the park with my friends,” said Nguyen. “I think it’s nice to kind of just get to hang out and spend time with them, we had a lot of fun, and even found a bunch of cool shells by the lake.”
Some students were able to go back to their families as well. Katelyn Fitzgerald was able to go back home to Illinois for the holiday and was excited to see all members of her family, including her pets.
“My dogs! I can’t wait to see them, I’ve been counting down the days until I got to pet them,” Fitzgerald said.
COVID-19 has had an effect on everything including holidays, but students showed there are still many ways to celebrate with family and friends.
