Journalism Major Discusses CSU's Decision to Keep Almost All Classes Online for Spring

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

KQED (SAN FRANCISCO)/ASSOCIATED PRESS -- For students, especially those in San Francisco, the decision to continue classes remotely through the spring comes with significant pros and cons. “On one hand, I am extremely grateful — it’s very apparent as we have seen across the country, college-aged people cannot be trusted to make informed health decisions,” said Siobhán Eagen, a senior at San Francisco State University, majoring in Journalism.

Eagen said she is grateful to be part of the CSU system, but she is also heartbroken. “The place I loved myself the most is in an educational setting. I loved being in school,” she said. Her education has been important, especially as someone who faced homelessness and didn’t receive much family support.
