Welcome to the twenty-second 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 Professor Brent Harger, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Rachel Wert ’21, and today’s hometown profile by Kyle McIntyre ’20, who comes from Redmond, Washington.
Remember, you can take us out of Gettysburg, but you can’t take Gettysburg out of us!

Today’s Hometown Profile (#GWFHhometowns)
“Bringing a Gettysburg Great ending to my senior year in my hometown of Redmond was not what I planned for, but isn’t an unpleasant outcome. I’ve traded the sight of a historic campus for a unimpeded view of the Cascade Mountains from my dining room window, and my dogs stay up with me as I crank out my final essays of college.”
