When all classes moved online and York University buildings closed in response to the direction of our public health authorities, a lot of international students like myself were not able to go back home. Fortunately, the university has provided accommodations for us to remain safe and secure on campus. We are certainly missing out on quality time with our families and friends, but one good thing about being one of the small number of students remaining on campus is that I get to snap some great photos of Keele Campus!
For the first time in my two years at York, I have had time to walk around and really explore and appreciate the outdoor spaces of our amazing campus. It is definitely the quietest I have ever seen it. Sometimes, as I go for a walk around campus, it feels like these now-empty buildings are silently missing us. Though a lot of you may miss a busy campus too, we are all playing an important role in getting us back to normal by staying home.
Here are some videos and photos of what campus looks like these days…
These are just snippets of what Keele Campus is like without all of us. It sure feels strange walking around this place seeing barely anyone around. But remember, we are all doing this for the safety of our communities, so stay home, be safe and stay well!
If you’re one of the students remaining on campus and you’d like to submit some photos of your own, leave a comment below or send them to us on Twitter or Facebook!
