ASCENT: The Pandemics of our Time
How the College of Arts and Sciences is responding to today’s challenges
Among many faiths and cultures, colder months often usher in a season of celebrations honoring light, life, resilience and rebirth. As we come together across differing backgrounds to give thanks at the end of this uniquely challenging year, we asked students, faculty and staff in the college to share the small moments that make the season special, even though our celebrations likely look a bit different.
Here is an introduction to the holiday recipes and traditions shared in the Arts and Sciences.
"Our familiar workplaces, materials and colleagues are no longer close at hand. Like everybody else, we’re still figuring this thing out. But we are not gone. We haven’t stopped. We haven’t even paused."
