Student Life and COVID Precautions

The average day of a Piedmont College student looks much different now than it did a year ago. With all of the masks and plexiglass dividers, it almost feels like a different world all together.

Beka Stegmayer, a junior exercise science major, walks to class on an average day.
Beka starts her days by picking a mask. As a college student, you should never leave the dorm without it.
Beka must wear a mask whenever she enters a building on campus. This protects herself and others from COVID.
While navigating campus, Beka must follow arrows that indicate entrances and exits. This is to provide a one way flow of traffic.
While many things have changed, the bookstore still allows Beka to pick up and drop off her books in person.
Beka must complete her Lion Check and a temperature check before taking part in any athletic activities on campus.
Masks must still be worn during physical activities in the gym. This keeps Beka from contracting COVID, and it helps improve her cardiovascular health.
Getting food in the cafe looks a little different for Beka now. She can no longer serve herself, she instead must have a worker fill her plate from behind a wall of plexiglass.
