As promised, here are more Kutztown University illustration student responses to the New Normal School. These students are working from home with what they have.

I appreciate the student’s resourcefulness. I do apologize for my shortcomings using ZOOM to communicate. We had no idea how the semester would be upended. I have learned a thing or two in The New Normal School.
