While some campuses have opted to move online entirely, most have adopted a hybrid model, a combination of in-person and online classes. Many campuses require students to submit a daily symptom report and some provide temperature checks before allowing entry into campus buildings. However, all university campuses are unanimous in one requirement: face masks.

Chances are you’ve tried a few different kinds of masks in the last few months and perhaps you’ve found that many have much to be desired when it comes to procuring style, safety and satisfaction. We talked to Auden residents and put together a list of their favorite face masks for classes, exercising and life.
