Sara Logue, 2022


Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Sara details the logistical hurdles faced by the University in managing testing capacities for students returning to campus, leading to the difficult decision of sending staff home to work remotely to alleviate the strain on testing resources. Sara also talks about grappling with the emotional weight of informing international researchers—including one who had traveled from the UK—that their research trips were canceled. Sara reflects on the emotional toll of constantly revisiting the early months of the pandemic and the struggle to find empathy while recognizing that her challenges were not as severe as others'. She highlights the importance of her job, family, and supportive colleagues in sustaining her through the difficult times, and acknowledges the blend of personal strength and vulnerability that defined her journey.
