Welcome to the twenty-sixth 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, as you take to your trails and to your streets, we are running one last challenge: Let’s Take a Walk. The task is simple: take a walk, take a picture, and share it with us here.
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 Hannah Kolarik ’20, today’s campus photo, courtesy of Ben Pontz ’20, and today’s hometown profile by Brittney Sedgwick ’21, who comes from Philadelphia, PA.
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)
“Few things made me jump for joy like participating in the Bullets Marching Band. One of the perks of being drum major was getting to blow my whistle, set into motion 100 people on a sojourn to the football field, and then run up front and hop into line. Thanks to Maci Mark’s dad for capturing me airborne.”

“This is a corner of my backyard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I miss the quad, but this is also a great study spot!
