The campus is strangely deserted. No students, hardly any cyclists, the occasional pedestrian. This calm is somewhat misleading because in fact it is extraordinary how much has happened over the past 10 days.
There are no more classes on campus, the first PhD ceremony via Skype has taken place, and most WUR employees are working at home. Then there was the Bachelor’s Open Day, which was entirely digital for the first time, lecturers are teaching online (optionally dressed as a banana) and ‘digital coffee machines’ have sprung up where colleagues can hang out virtually for a chat.
No shortage of stories for Resource. But there is still that deserted campus... That is why you won’t find Resource in the usual trays around the campus; we will primarily be distributing the magazine digitally, for example via Issue. Please share it with as many colleagues and WUR students as possible.

For now: stay safe and good luck, everyone!
