  1. I would never a photojournalist what to do with his/her work, but I could definitely see the photo of the students in class showing their attestations as becoming an epic photo in Time Magazine or even on CNN. It truly captures the surreal essence of higher education in America during COVID times. Somehow it just hits me at my core. Take a bow, Ms. Cydney Scott. You did an awesome job capturing the soul and spirit of the reality of these times.

    1. Thank you so much, Jim! Technically the photo is not the best. It was a challenging space with competing light sources, but I thought it was story-telling shot for sure.

  2. Yes! I agree with Jim in New Orleans! That photo made me stop and call my husband over to see it. Fascinating—truly an inside look at life in the classroom. Great photos throughout but that one stopped me in my tracks.

  3. I couldn’t be more proud of my alma mater! As a healthcare professional, I’ve seen COVID strategies deployed in many different settings with variable effort and thoughtfulness. BU’s strategy is exemplary. BU’s commitment to doing everything it can to get students back on campus is what every student deserves from their University. Ms. Scott and Ms. Ricciardi – truly fantastic work telling that story in pictures!

  4. The editors of BU Today should have read the Wall Street Journal today where you would have seen that the Journal report on College Rankings had BU ranked #40 out of 500 schools. That’s better than US News that no one reads today. …Bob Amdur com class of ’55
