Skyler Nash came to UVM in 2017 with his focus on basketball, determined to help the Catamounts pile up victories and develop his potential for a chance at a pro career. Hitting his first collegiate shot, a three-pointer against perennial power Kentucky at Rupp Arena, was an auspicious start on that road. But just nine games into the season, he would suffer a season-ending ACL injury.
Animal science major Kortnie Wheaton was always interested in the way diseases spread between animals and humans. She even wrote her UVM admissions essay on mad cow disease, but until arriving at UVM, never envisioned herself working with livestock or in the field of biosecurity.
Sunlight streams into Kelly Hamshaw’s study in Bristol, Vermont, illuminating the overflowing bookshelves behind her. She is waiting for students to log into her virtual class, CDAE 271: Local Community Initiatives. The University of Vermont Senior Lecturer has logged in fifteen minutes early – intentionally. She does this every class to replicate “pre-class chats” in a remote environment.
