Welcome to the sixteenth edition of our “Great Work from Home” daily bulletin, an initiative of The Gettysburgian during this season of social distancing. Each morning, we will present a curated playlist, a favorite Gettysburg campus photo, and hometown spotlight, each submitted by a different Gettysburgian.
This is a way to start our days together. We’ll present these features on Instagram, on our website, and, if you like, via email (see sign-up below). We’ll be reaching out to students, faculty members, and employees and asking them to share, and we invite you to do so too; find links to Google Forms for each of these recurring features at the bottom of the page.
As always, the most important part of this initiative is you. So tell us, what do you like? What don’t you like? What else would you like to see? Get in touch with the #GWFH team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, please tell us how remote learning and working is affecting your day-to-day life. We would love to hear from new voices—students, staff, faculty, administrators, and friends of the college are welcome to fill out our form, and we’ll be in touch.
For now, we hope you enjoy today’s playlist, curated by Olivia Chatowsky ’21, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Lauren Hand ’20, and today’s hometown profile, by Natalie Orga ’21, who comes from Bear, Delaware.
Remember, you can take us out of Gettysburg, but you can’t take Gettysburg out of us!

Today’s Hometown Profile (#GWFHhometowns)
“This photo was taken in historic Lewes, Delaware, the first European settlement in the state, founded in 1631. This is where I spent a lot of my childhood. My siblings and I grew up at the beach; my brother and I were lifeguards for a while, and it was at Lewes that my stepdad proposed to my Mom (and also where they were married). The beach is a big part of our family life, and we all can’t wait to get back to the water!.”
