Stress sometimes brings out the best in people, and that certainly has been the case with our students, staff, and faculty. I have never been prouder of Berkeley Physics. We began by trying to rescue our Open House – the annual event where newly accepted graduate students visit 伯克利, to talk with our faculty and to decide if they would rather be here than elsewhere. In just a few days, Open House was entirely reorganized as a virtual event, complete with an online poster session. Among our many heroes in pulling this off, a special thanks to Joelle and Sarah and the long hours they invested. Simultaneously we began to take our entire curriculum online – another Herculean effort that succeeded because of the leadership of vice-chair Jonathan Wurtele and a team of faculty who creatively moved even our laboratories into cyberspace. And our students pulled together, adapting to this new mode of learning without complaint, and reaching out to support one another. This included continuing the aptly renamed end-of-week Physics & Astronomy Social (Distancing) Hour, beverage of one’s choice optional.
有研究以创造性的方式正在做的和我们的日子现在充满了变焦合作，伯克利弹性是无处不在的证据。它仍然将是很好的通过这个来获得。当我们这样做，前来参观洽谈 - 即使在距离不到六脚。
