Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Brevard
College, like other colleges and universities,
sent its students home. This forces the
college to enact online classes to finish up
the semester, and BC students love this idea.
Freshman JaMarcus Walker and Alii
Kogoy are very excited to spend part of their
first year at Brevard College online, “This is
exactly what we dreamed of when we thought
of coming to college,” said Walker. “I love
being at home and having schoolwork to keep
me entertained,” said Kogoy.
What better way to spend your college
experience than at home, the place you tried
so hard to get away from. Brevard College
sophomore Andrew Ingram is really excited
about the online classes and the change of
scenery. “Today (March 30) is my birthday.
Last year I was spending it with all of
my friends and this year I am spending it
quarantined in my house,” said Ingram.
To top it all off, BC students get to see
their favorite professors in the comfort of
their own home. Nothing makes a student
more happy than to watch a professor, who
can barely work YouTube, try to video chat
with a class of 30 people.
Little is known of the future when it comes
to students returning to campus due to the
pandemic. Many schools are not sure when
the virus will slow down enough to make
it safe for students to be on campus again.
Junior Kenzie Bowman says she likes the
online classes so much that she is not sure
she wants to return to campus, “I don’t know
if I want to come back. I think Brevard may
need to turn into an online school.”
During this time away from campus,
administration may need to come to a
conclusion of whether or not to make Brevard
fully online, due to the enormous praise it has
received from students.

Everyone has encountered Dust Bunnies, even
if they didn’t realize it. Most of the time they are
overlooked, which is to their liking, and live out
their fluffball lives out of sight and out of mind
of their unsuspecting roommates.
These small creatures spontaneously generate
in many rooms all over the world but are only
seen as a minor, if embarrassing, inconvenience.
They tend to favor small spaces and will often
be seen on hard, smooth surfaces.
While the reasoning for this flooring
preference is unknown, it may be due to the
ease of movement the Dust Bunnies have when
crossing these surfaces. This idea is supported
on the limited sightings of wild Dust Bunnies
living in carpeted rooms or on rugs.
When in their preferred habitat of hard,
smooth-floored rooms. Dust Bunnies will

generally congregate under low furniture, under
beds, in comers, behind doors and occasionally
beside mgs. There is no explanation for their
unusual fondness of mgs which in nature will
entangle Dust Bunnies making them unable to
move and flee from predators such as vacuums,
cats and cleaning humans.
Dust Bunny appearances can vary in color
and size. In most cases Dust Bunnies will take
on the colorations of the host humans they are
living with the most common colors being black,
blond, and brown. On rare occasions red dust
bunnies can be found.
Occasionally if Dust Bunnies observe changes
in the hosts hair color, they will appropriate
those colors to match which can result in wild
variations of color. Size is purely dependent
on the age of the Dust Bunny and their skill at
Generally, they are not found in large groups
of more than five individuals and live out semi
solitary lives scuttling from place to place. If a
large piece of close-to-the-floor furniture has
been in place long enough, a colony can form
with numerous Dust Bunnies. They have not
been observed eating or drinking but it is widely
accepted they hate open spaces, wet floors,
brooms and high breezes.
Due to the current conditions on Brevard
College’s campus, these Dust Bunnies have been
able to proliferate extensively in the absence of
their hosts. Increased numbers have proven to
be difficult to contain and they have been seen
traveling down halls, going under doors and
amassing in the many empty rooms on campus.
While they currently do not pose a threat
and are almost completely harmless to our
knowledge, there have been one or two asthma
related cases, it is advised to corral them and
move them to a more convenient location.
The use of vacuums is not advised as due to
overpopulation Dust Bunnies can easily clog
If you see or hear of unprecedented large
colonies of Dust Bunnies in the area, please
report them to the proper trained professionals
^ who may be better equipped with brooms and
* cleaning devices to handle infestations.
