“I'm really confused with how exams are going to be taken because I have four exams next week, and no one has said how I am supposed to take them … I know myself, and I am not really good with self discipline so I feel like my classes will be hard to keep up with assignments. But I don't know if it is a good or bad idea. I’m just going with the flow.”

“I think it would be okay. I trust that Nebraska cares about us a lot so they will help us figure out what to do. [We’ll] just make sure we can keep our grades good. So I’m not too worried. It’s just sad leaving friends.”

“It's just surreal. We have been hearing about it for weeks now and now it's actually happening. I’m just very stressed about everything, moving out of the dorms and trying to do all my homework online. It’s crazy.”
