The “Coffee” at the End of the Tunnel

Last Wednesday, I got the opportunity to catch up with my sponsor brothers and sponsor mom over at the Leamy Hall Student Center. This was long overdue because everyone had been very busy with academics and military. Our sponsor mom also had scheduling conflicts and we had to sort out and synchronize our schedules with hers. Finally, once we had everyone together, we sat down by the couches of the cafe. I was very excited to hear their stories after not being able to sit down like this together in-person for over months now.

While drinking our Starbucks coffee and blended beverages, we conversed about how excited we are for Thanksgiving leave and how tough this school year was due to online classes and the current COVID-19 pandemic. While socially distanced, we exchanged our goodbyes and wished everyone to finish the semester strong. I am happy to see all of them hanging in there and staying positive despite everything that is happening outside the walls of the Academy. We thank the staff of the Leamy Hall Student Center Café for being available for socially-distanced gatherings like these. We hope to spend more time here in the coming weeks as we close out the semester and transition to remote-learning after Thanksgiving.
