Welcome to the twenty-third 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: 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 Logan Shippee ’22, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Becky Montross ’20, and today’s hometown profile by Hallie Lavin ’21, who comes from Westport, CT.
Remember, you can take us out of Gettysburg, but you can’t take Gettysburg out of us!

Today’s Featured Photo (#GWFHgtag = Good Times at Gettysburg)
“This photo was taken April 2018, my Sophomore spring. My parents came to visit for Easter, along with my pupper, Lilly. We let her roam free around campus, and followed after her wherever she went. Here we are, on the way to the library!”-Becky Montross ’20
Today’s Hometown Profile (#GWFHhometowns)
“Westport, CT is right on Long Island Sound, so I spent my summers growing up going to the beach. The beaches are all closed now, but there are still some spots on the water that you can drive to. Sunsets on the water have always been my favorite thing about going home, because it’s like getting two sunsets in one (no shade @ Gettysburg sunsets though). Even though this has been a really weird homecoming, and a lot has changed, I like that this is one consistent thing that I get to see almost everyday. It makes life feel a bit more normal.”
-Hallie Lavin ’21
