In the midst of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Division of Student Affairs remains committed to student success. The last few weeks have brought unprecedented levels of change to our lives—changes in how we learn and go to school, changes in work and employment, and changes in our social lives. But we can manage—and perhaps even thrive during this time.
Departments throughout the division have worked diligently over the last several weeks to gather content and develop a central landing page for well-being resources. Redbirds Keep Thriving now offers helpful tools for students and the campus community during this challenging time. Specific topics include managing anxiety, social isolation, physical health, grief, and financial stress. The landing page also features a listing of virtual well-being events, including workouts, meditation and mindfulness sessions, relaxation rooms, and more.
Allyson Hawkins, staff psychologist in Student Counseling Services shares, “This is an extremely challenging time and it requires us to be creative about how we maintain structure, purpose, fun, and social connection and stave off boredom, depression, and anxiety. Our staffs are committed to serving students, even while they are away from campus. We will continue to add to these resources so that students can find ideas for how to be resilient during these extraordinary circumstances.”
While we are not physically on campus, Redbirds can continue to thrive together. Visit Redbirds Keep Thriving today.
