On the Cover
The mosaic images in this cover artwork represent the remote nature of FSU’s spring and summer semesters and the virtual events that took the place of time-honored traditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together the images form an iconic piece of the university’s identity and demonstrate that however separate and at whatever distance, we are still FSU.
