Rethinking community: How student organizations are coping off-campus

All clubs, all extracurriculars, have had to adjust not only their meetings and projects to make them possible remotely. And without performances, conferences, and competitions to attend, most student organizations face the same challenges — it seems there’s nothing for which to prepare, no reason to keep working.
