Spring Quarter Photoblog

Office of University Communications spring Visual Journalism interns Cody Clark and Hannah Gordon-Kirk will spend their quarter documenting through images the most unique and challenging academic term in Western's history. They will use their cameras to shed light on the online-only campus experience, and show Western's resilience and sense of community in the face of the coronavirus crisis.
