COVID-19 Anxiety: Scholars Faculty Is Here for Students

Scholars students received the following message today from Dr. Marilee Lindemann, executive director of College Park Scholars:

Dear students,

I know the past few days have been a lot to take. You’ve undoubtedly experienced a range of emotions in a very short span of time, as rumors have spread about the campus response to the coronavirus. I’m sure you feel like you have a lot of questions and not enough answers. Maybe the only thing you know for sure now is that you feel uncertain and anxious.

Scholars Alum: Valentine's Special with Jeff Amoros and Corey Brewer

College Park Scholars Executive Director Marilee Lindemann often jokes to new students that some of them may end up meeting the love of their life in Scholars. The line usually gets an incredulous, slightly nervous laugh from students, but it’s true: Some of our Scholars students eventually go on to fall in love and marry. In this special Valentine’s edition of our alumni profiles, we offer a Q&A with one such couple.
