My name is Katt Lundy and I am a first-year EPM student interested in collaborative, adaptive land management. Remote learning definitely has its ups and downs, but I'm happy that the community atmosphere of the EPM students is staying strong. The EPM social committee hosts weekly zoom meetings where EPM students can socialize and relax. My advisor, Fran Moore, hosts weekly lab meetings where we have tea and talk about our studies and quarantine activities. My classes are still challenging, which means that the quality of my education remains the same. I am happy that the EPM community has stayed strong and healthy and that I am still able to learn and thrive out here in 2020!
