UT seniors discuss wrapping up college, planning for future during ongoing pandemic


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Graduating from college marks a major milestone for every student, and reaching that achievement this year means possibly stepping into the working world during a pandemic that’s still not over yet.

KXAN hosted a live-streamed conversation Thursday afternoon with three college seniors to talk about what the school year has been like for them and how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is affecting their future plans.

The guests who joined digital anchor Will DuPree during the live stream included Graysen Golter, Mercedes Gonzalez and Ryan Chandler — all who have been interns this semester with the KXAN news team.

As part of their virtual internship, Golter, Gonzalez and Chandler wrote weekly blog posts on KXAN.com to talk about their thoughts of both learning about the news and living it since they’re each experiencing virtual learning and changes in their college and universities because of the coronavirus pandemic.
