The Week in Pictures: The Scene From Campus

Olivia Paul ‘21 is the only Lake Placid resident on The Mirror’s staff, who hasn’t dispersed back home throughout the world. While students are away from Northwood’s campus, Olivia will write regular dispatches that portray what she sees on campus and around Lake Placid. This is her second post.

Bowls of fruit in the dining room are now individually-wrapped to help control the spread of the virus. Until Governor Cuomo issued his New York State on Pause” executive order, essentially closing the school, Northwood’s Kitchen staff was serving a small number of essential workers who are cleaning and disinfecting school grounds.


Northwood’s campus property is officially closed, except for faculty, staff, and families. The fitness center and indoor turf field are also closed to everyone until further notice. The trailhead to Cobble Hill, located behind the classroom building, is also closed.


Online classes are in full swing! Students complete all of their homework, projects, class discussions, quizzes, and tests from their homes via computer, tablet or mobile phone. Matthew Paul ’22, son of Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Laura Paul, is seen here at his dining room table in their West Dorm apartment.


Faculty members and friends Ms. Mavis Agnew (left, with dog Quigley) and Ms. Noel Carmichael observe social distancing guidelines while on a snowy walk around a quiet Mirror Lake earlier this week.


Ms. Katie and Mr. Trevor Gilligan are pictured here picking up their food from Fledging Crow farm, located in Keeseville, NY. The local farm came to school to deliver fresh vegetables, eggs, and dairy products for the faculty and staff who ordered it.
