Students Return to Campus for In-Person Learning with Professor Ed Larson
On Friday, April 9, Professor Ed Larson and all nine students from his Constitutional Convention class made a triumphant, socially-distanced return to campus for in-person learning. Larson was eager to step away from Zoom and into the classroom for the first time since March 2020, and he described the experience as a delight and an honor.
At its convening, Pepperdine University President Jim Gash stopped by the class to greet students, answer questions, and engage in a spirited conversation with Professor Larson and students about the Constitution. President Gash was characteristically effusive about being in the company of students once again.
Third-year law student Zachary Carstens shared, "Returning to campus in person reminded me of all the things I love about Pepperdine. While we have made the most of this virtual year, there is just no substitute for being in the classroom. I am so excited for Pepperdine to begin the process of rebuilding community and culture as students arrive next year to start in-person classes again. I am so grateful to our administration and Professor Larson for making the effort to have an in-person class this spring!"
