From April to May 2020, Purdue University Asian American and Asian Resource and Cultural Center (AAARCC) extended a Call for Responses and Reflections with the theme of Life Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic. Through this call, we would like to offer a community of support in going through the pandemic together as Purdue Community. We invited our campus to submit different reflective, creative expressions to describe their current experience. We asked our campus to consider the following questions: How has your life changed since the university moved to online instruction? How have you been connecting with others during this time of “social distancing"? If you wanted other people, both in the present and in the future, to know one thing about your current experience, what would it be? Why? How has the pandemic been affecting your communities? It is our hope that the sharing of such reflections may prompt further discussions of support and solidarity, not only among the Asians and Asian Americans, but also among wider Purdue communities.
