We hope you enjoy this month’s virtual magazine. We put care into curating an issue that celebrates what spring brings us from Women’s History Month to March Madness. We also want to acknowledge what the pandemic has changed for students.
This March is a difficult one. We’ve hit the one-year mark since the WHO declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic and have come off a turbulent election where the humanity of the most vulnerable was called into question. It’s important that you take time to introspect and recover after such a difficult year.
Here at Kaleidoscope we hope that all people who have been affected by this turbulent and painful year can find some peace. We send our sympathy to the students, faculty and staff who have lost loved ones this year and wish a speedy recovery to our community members who have dealt with this illness themselves.
That said, I am proud of the UAB community because we have been careful to keep our COVID cases down and protect each other as best we can.
It’s an honor to close out this mess of a school year as Kaleidoscope’s editor-in-chief. I can’t wait to see what next school year brings us.
