If we hadn’t seen it with our own eyes, we would never have believed it. UW–Madison’s year included a move to all online classes in the spring, a truncated football season in the fall, and other coronavirus-related disruptions. Add in a Rose Bowl game that now seems like ancient history, and you could safely call 2020 “extraordinary.” Maybe even “phantasmagorical.”
Did it really happen? The photos that follow prove that the UW’s pandemic year wasn’t just a hallucination.
