Welcome to the twenty-fourth 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 Marisa Immordino ’20, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Taylor Rush ’21, and today’s hometown profile by James Lamb ’21, who comes from Rocklin, CA.
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)
“My sister is one of my best friends, so I was very excited when she decided to join the Gettysburg class of 2023. This is a picture of us during orientation.”-Taylor Rush ’21
Today’s Hometown Profile (#GWFHhometowns)
“This picture was taken at a park near my house in Rocklin, California. The view of the sunset there is one of my favorite in Rocklin! That field of trees is actually a disc golf course; Rocklin has an awesome Parks and Recreation program, and I’m so appreciative to have such great places to stay active while working from home.”
-James Lamb ’21
