Welcome to the twenty-first 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.
This week, we are challenging you to read a book (for fun) and share a little bit about what you read with us. You can find a link to participate at the bottom of the page as well.
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: email@example.com.
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 Allyson Frantz ’23, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Julia Jones ’23, and today’s hometown profile by Phoebe Doscher ’22, who comes from Sandy Hook, CT.
Remember, you can take us out of Gettysburg, but you can’t take Gettysburg out of us!

“It’s always fun to explore the town with your newfound friends.”-Julia Jones ’23
Today’s Hometown Profile (#GWFHhometowns)
“Lately, as a family, we’ve embraced the beauty of our community by taking many walks and exploring the area. Here is a snapshot of the center of our town from high ground featuring the picturesque flagpole and church that decorate Newtown’s Main Street. In a time where nature is the only escape from the confines of my house, I feel lucky to live in such a beautiful place.”
