From Thursday, the 13th, to Friday, the 14th October 2020, the first fully digital St. Olaf Board of Regents meeting took place. The video conference format did not only cause the meeting to be shorter overall, but also BORSC being allocated only twelve minutes for our biannual presentation on students’ perspectives. Thanks to our presentation being scheduled within the first session, it could be referred back to throughout the meeting. Our two topics, attending college during a pandemic and racism as well as antiracist action, were key to the meeting anyway.
