As the semester and academic year comes to a close, The College Reporter has been reflecting on how best to use our platform as an uplifting and celebratory space for the senior class as they enter their postgraduate years. Two weeks ago, we asked for students and faculty to submit articles for Senior Appreciation Week. We received nearly a dozen tributes to the class of 2020 and their strength, kindness, and active participation in our F&M community. As they go on to even bigger and better things, we hope they will look back on their years at F&M with joy and remember the lives they touched along the way.
