The pandemic has impacted everyone at different levels, you are encouraged to see this time as an opportunity to rethink, reunite and re-connect for the wellbeing of yourselves and others. Instead of focusing on the downside, reflect on what you have learned and experienced during this difficult time and realize that nothing could be more important than your wellness and the well-being of others. 

We have all worked to provide non-traditional ways to connect with you and get to know you outside of the classroom. By working to create a sense of community with different programs, such as Wellness Wednesday Community Circles we offer opportunities for students to socialize and connect, even when physical distancing may be necessary.

Please read your Global Announcements on CANVAS and plan to join us on each Wellness Wednesday at 10:00 and share ideas about ways to BE WELL and support others in their efforts to do the same.
