MONTPELIER — A few of the comments shared by Northern Vermont University students this week about the possible closure of their school included, “This school is my life,” “Many families cannot afford to travel to different parts of the state for college,” and “If it would cost $25M to close campuses or keep them open, why not wait a year?”

The stretch from the semester break to February Break can seem long. Even fun events like ResFest, the Valentine’s Day Semi-Formal, and Winter Carnival—or back-to-back Snow Days—can hardly take the chill off below-zero mornings and the resumption of the daily school routine after the holidays. We often speak about resilience, grit, and perseverance as we coach students how to “make it to break”. When things get hard, I have counseled them from the Fuller Hall stage to take “one day at a time”, to remember that “this too shall pass”, and to keep telling themselves (as one of my friends keeps reminding me) “we’ve got this!” This past weekend, I was inspired by some of our students who showed me what grit, mental toughness, and perseverance really look like.
