In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Construction Engineering division of ASEE hosted two round-table discussions at the 2020 international conference. The first session, titled "COVID in the Spring" was aimed at sharing stories of success and challenge from the spring transition to online teaching and learning. The second session titled "COVID in the Fall" asked participants to share plans and concerns about the fall 2020 semester. One hundred and ninety-six ASEE members representing 122 institutions attended these sessions, exceeding our expectations and providing a broad disciplinary perspective. This paper summarizes the themes that emerged from these discussions in order to memorialize the state of matters within engineering education at the height of this monumental experience of our time. Included is a contextual reflection on the themes that were identified from a perspective eight months after the conference.
