This semester has been difficult for everyone. It seems as though the sources of stress and anxiety are relentless. Students and professors are doing everything they can to the online class format, but this is still new and difficult territory. Some professors, despite their best intentions, have not adapted their courses to Zoom in an appropriate or user friendly way, and many students are not able to engage in online class as effectively as they would in person. Stress is at an all-time high for all of us. If we were to be allowed the option at the end of this semester to switch our grades to the pass fail option as we were in the Spring 2020 semester, I feel that it would have an overwhelmingly positive effect on all students as we would no longer have to fear that any subpar academic performance this semester caused by undue stress from the past year will be something which we are trying to make up for the remainder of our college careers, or worse, something that will delay our graduation. To simply have the option to fall back upon if we need it would take an immense load off of our backs as we wrap up this semester and, knowing what we know now, better prepare for the semester ahead.
