Dear Bilkent News Readers,
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all experiencing disruptions, both great and small, to our usual way of life and our daily routines. Universities across the globe, including Bilkent, have shut down their campuses and switched their mode of instruction to distance learning, holding classes and other activities online.
Among the routines to have been interrupted at Bilkent is the weekly publication of Bilkent News. Consequently, in accordance with the university’s efforts to continue many of its activities online, the Editorial Board decided to publish this online issue of our newspaper to keep you informed about university events and activities.
We hope that before too much longer, we will once again be able to meet you, our valued readers, in the usual way via our weekly print edition. Until then, we will continue to publish online issues from time to time.
Above all, we hope that all Bilkent University students and employees, as well as their family members, are and will remain safe and in good health.
