Strange times, but not all bad
We are very proud of how our academics, students, and staff have made sure EUC stays EUC, despite social distancing during COVID-19. We can’t wait to be face to face again but in the meantime we’re proud of how our community has experimented, evolved, and found new ways to connect during these “strange times.”
