No matter what way you look at it, the class of 2020 got a raw deal. To discuss this and a lot more we are joined by the President of the Union of Students in Ireland, Lorna Fitzpatrick. We ask what the college experience looks like in a Covid-19 world. Lorna outlines the challenges facing both students and faculty as the grapple with accommodation, remote learning, online portals and the loss of that social interaction that is a cornerstone of a young persons development.
