Corona virus as a CCI Participant

By Emre Suren

During the last three months, we all have been affected by the Corona virus. Corona virus is one of the fastest disruptive viruses which made a considerable change in the world. New terms and behaviors came to people’s lives with this virus; social distancing, self-isolation, or being in quarantine. Besides this, social phobias have been rising furiously, and these are not even the only thing that we have been experiencing after the virus.

The Corona virus has been affecting every industry. All the results show that the economy is destroyed around the world. As a business student, I do follow all the flow in the business sector carefully. So, it is so easy to understand why this situation  was announced as a pandemic, and the solutions are limited because this issue is hard to control.

So, since people have to stay at home, everything has gone online. Education is one of the affected parts at this point. Most of the people agreed that they do not like working or studying online. We are all exchange students here under the CCI Program, and one of our goals is exchanging the cultures. We like being around the campus to share and learn more. Still, unfortunately, it is pretty tricky without having in-person classes.  I am not the type of person who can get satisfied with online class contents.

On the other hand, this situation puts people into a depression quickly. So, people are using their social media to give guidance about how to work or study from home because this pandemic is something new for all of us.  Even counseling service is online in order to help students to motivate and keep themselves in the affirmative.

So, the Corona virus situation is an experience that wasn’t expected for me, for all CCI participants, and for people around the world. There are both positive and negative sides; air pollution is decreasing every day.  I am still hoping to see the best version of the world soon.
