Welcome to the twenty-fifth 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 Gauri Mangala ’21, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Alumni Director Joe Lynch ’85, and today’s hometown profile by Alison Lashendock ’20, who comes from Newburyport, MA.
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)
“I must admit that I didn’t maintain safe social distancing to get this shot, but I just couldn’t resist when I went by Eisenhower House on campus and saw Ike hanging out there by himself, ready to meet any and all future Gettysburgians…”

Today’s Hometown Profile (#GWFHhometowns)
“Taking our family dog, Tucket, for a walk by the ocean has long been a family tradition and it is one we have begun to lean on more since coming home. Despite empty beaches and lingering New England winds, Tucket runs circles around us, bringing a smile to our face and sparking joy in our hearts. We are all missing Gettysburg right now. And we all feel apprehensive about what the future might hold. But these are the moments that will get us through this.”
-Alison Lashendock ’20
