Griffin Paterson ’20 said that when he took the cover photo, looking through the Long Walk’s Fuller Arch at Northam Towers, he was imagining a parallel universe without COVID-19, one where he would walk through the archway, step on the  Luther-Roosevelt stone, and graduate with his friends and classmates. “In that moment,  though, all that was left was a shadow—my shadow—of what was supposed to be,” said Paterson, who earned a B.A. in political science with a minor in Hispanic studies.  “COVID-19 had cast a shadow all over the world, and in it consumed my final moments as a college  student. All I had left of my time at  Trinity was memories, shadows of the past.” For more from Paterson and some of his classmates, please see Through their eyes.
