A message from the chancellor and vice chancellor of Vanderbilt re student
behavior ignoring the pandemic: "we write this not to scare you but to be
perfectly plain: The situation happening at other universities can be
avoided at Vanderbilt, but only if you anchor down, step up and do your
part." (From the NYT) Never heard of anchor down in this sense. Maybe they
meant hunker down?
