A Day in the Life of a Buc

As students prepare to return to campus, Blair’s student life office came together to produce “A Day in the Life of a Buc,” a brief—and fun!—video designed to educate community members about Blair’s health-and-safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. Associate Dean of Students Andee Ryerson filmed the video, which gives students the opportunity to see what an average day will look like during the fall 2020 semester. The video starts with the Buc getting ready for the day and goes through the daily routine of attending class, eating meals and spending free time with friends.

“Our goal is to get everyone acquainted with and excited about the new rules and policies we will all follow this fall to keep everyone safe and well,” Mrs. Ryerson said. “This video helps to assure students that, even though we have to mask up, observe physical distancing and follow other new procedures, everyday life will still include all the best things about Blair, even if it looks a little different this year.”

We are most grateful to Chris for his excellent leadership and many contributions over the course of his tenure and wish him and his family well.
