The Challenges of COVID-19: A year of Hunger, Hope, and Resilience at Dixon Hall

As we mark the one-year anniversary of the start of our current global pandemic, it is important to reflect on how much and how deeply our community has been affected. Here at Dixon Hall, we are taking a moment to look back at the experiences and challenges that certainly tested us, but that also made us stronger as an organization, and as a community.

International Women’s Day at Dixon Hall

March 8, International Women’s Day, is a day for all of us to notice.
