Convenient for those who are more anxious about Covid than others, virtual hangouts allow friends to connect and interact while still maintaining social distance and staying out of the cold winter air. Masked hangouts are going to increase when the weather gets nicer outside, and walking trails around campus are going to become increasingly popular with students just itching to get outside.
