Isn’t it great to see faces again this semester? Smiling faces, angry faces, laughing faces, stressed-out faces, praying faces … just seeing faces on campus is such a positive aspect of this current semester. ThePerk is one of students’ favorite locations on the MBU campus. In the fall of 2020, everyone at MBU wore masks because of the pandemic. As we continue to emerge from living through a season with required face coverings, MBU photojournalists Emily Heflin and Madisyn House capture some new and familiar faces that we can now see around thePerk.

As the world moves past the one-year mark of COVID-19, what are college students missing the most these days and what do they look forward to as we are finally turning the corner on this deadly pandemic? Could it be the freedom of not wearing a mask? Or perhaps just interacting with other people?
Students miss their pre-COVID lives and wonder when those lives might return. Thankfully, some projections estimate we could begin returning to a more normal lifestyle as early as late spring or early summer. Photo by Bram Williams
