IMAGINING YOUR FUTURE

You’re tired

Of hearing

About COVID-19.

We get it.

And we hope

You know

We get it.


If you’ve learned but nothing

From this time

Of

Uncertainty

Unrest

Peculiarity -

It’s that the world

Is ever-changing.

Truly unpredictable.

Eerily unstoppable.

And when the world

Isn’t stopping. Well –

Neither can you.


Neither did we.


Remember Zoom?

Well yeah,

It’s still around…

And maybe a little

Too much.

We feel you on that.

That’s why

We didn’t stop there.

We didn’t even begin there.

Though the technology

Existed

Pre-pandemic,

Peak-pandemic

Illuminated

An opportunity

To fill a void.

A void

That emerged

Without thought.

Human connection.

Face-to-face interaction.

Community.

Poof.

Gone.

The only human connection

Beyond that of the

Family members

That quarantined behind

Your closed doors

Fell behind a screen.

News on a television screen.

Distant friends on a FaceTime screen.

Colleagues on a Zoom screen.


We knew

There was more to it.


Think about

The word

“Campus.”

What comes to mind?

P.S.

This is not

A trick question.


Take a minute.


Then proceed.


If you’ve had

The privilege

Of living

On a college campus –

For a semester

One year

Four years.

You know the feeling.

It’s called

“campus life.”

A microcosm

Of the real world.

A diverse

Community.

A home

away from home.


A digital campus

Is just that.

A microcosm

Of the real world –

Just digital.

A diverse

Community –

Just digital.

A home

away from home –

Well, maybe not.

“Homebase”

You could call it.

A centralized location

For

Relationships

Knowledge

Experience.


With a concept

So revolutionary.

So evolutionary.

One thing holds true –

It is certainly

Here to stay.


If you’d like to hear more about the possibility of building a digital campus for your brand, department, division - you name it - give us a shout. We’d be honored to show you the perks of that darn COVID-19.
