When Covid-19 hit we tried to brainstorm ideas on how to connect the graduate community with their institution while also staying safe! This meant that we needed to lean on social media and other online platforms to bring entertaining and informative media straight to your work-from-home work space. Thus, the Behind the Plexiglass Video Series was born!
