A Life Changing Year A Life Changing Year

The global pandemic and everything that came along with it introduced us to new challenges and pushed us all to find new ways to persevere. We experienced hardship and loss, opportunities, and growth. Thanks to the incredible dedication, tenacity, and spirit of CSU Pueblo students, faculty, staff and citizens of Pueblo, our community did more than survive — it found ways to triumph, together.

Because of COVID, we also learned of how adaptable we could be, and how access for students could be expanded. Prior to COVID, all support focused in-person and during business hours. Now the SLC (and other tutoring centers) are providing online tutoring support during business hours, but also on the evenings and weekends.”

We were successful with the transition from the College of Education, Engineering and Professional Studies to the new structure, The College of Health, Education and Nursing. Our new college continues to GROW!! My team was also amazing at transitioning to online, hybrid and hyflex classes in the midst of the pandemic. Several of them received certification in online teaching!!”

Receiving the work-study stipend saved me this last semester and eased so much stress out of my life. Without this stipend, I would not be where I am right now. For those who support themselves independently and live on their own, working less than 20 hours a week is not enough to support all financial needs. I hope future student teachers can have the same opportunity I had.”

I felt at ease being both a student and student work-study at CSU Pueblo during the turbulent times of the pandemic because of some amazing professors and educators, as well as the CSU Pueblo staff. I’m excited to start the next semester face to face.“

"Not taking anything away from any previous ThunderWolf teams but this one was the most memorable, exciting, accomplished and challenging of my career. We beat almost all of our opponents all year on the course as well as COVID and succeeded during a pandemic. This group bought in, committed and made the sacrifices to give us a chance to create one of the best years in Pack Golf history."
