Earlier this month, on the heels of a semester that saw thousands of students, faculty and campus workers test positive for COVID-19, Mississippi colleges and universities reopened for spring. As students returned to their dorms, self-reported cases in college towns across the state jumped.

Are you a student trying to navigate studying from home? A professor struggling to choose between teaching in-person and protecting your health? A campus worker who’s been laid off? We want to hear how the pandemic is affecting your semester. Share your thoughts with us by filling out the form below.
