Have You Picked Up a New Hobby during the Pandemic? Tell Us about It
BU Today wants to hear from students, faculty, and staff for a special photo essay
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, millions of Americans suddenly found themselves studying or working from home. And with movie theaters, clubs, concert halls, and sporting venues shuttered, many have taken up new hobbies, like baking (sourdough bread, anyone?), painting, gardening, rock climbing, birding, and lots of other pursuits.
How about you? During the past several months has something new intrigued you or caught your interest? If you’re local and living in the Boston area, we’d love to hear about it. BU Today is producing a special photo essay featuring students, faculty, and staff and their new pandemic-era hobbies.
If you’d like to be considered for our photo essay, contact BU photographer Cydney Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30. Include your name, phone number, and a few sentences about your new hobby and why you enjoy it. If you’re a student, include the school you’re enrolled in and the year you’re graduating. If you’re a faculty or staff member, include your title.
