Virtual Community Building

We are back on campus, but still need to maintain social distance for the health and safety of our community! We have events happening on campus and there are plenty of things you can do on your own! Check out the information below!

Activate Yourself

Connect with Others

  • Call a good friend you haven't talked to in a while.
  • Video chat with a friend or family member (using Zoom, FaceTime, or House Party).
  • Look through your old or your family's/friend's photo albums - comment on some photos and tag family/friends to reminisce!
  • Challenge friends (or yourself) to a Harry Potter Digital Escape Room.
  • Attend a virtual event or club meeting! Why not try something new?
