Hello and Welcome to Fall 2020! Student Activities is experiencing many changes, just like all of you. Our move to virtual work during this pandemic, while challenging, provides new opportunities for access and connection. Check the updates below!
Advising by Appointment
We are a smaller staff, but a mighty one, here and ready to support you! Simply email an advisor to schedule an individual or group zoom chat to talk through ideas, answer your questions, and connect with us!
Registered Student Organizations (Clubs) are an important part of our community and student experience. Clubs who were awarded Fall 2020 start up budgets will be contacted by their advisors for support this quarter. We’ll talk through options available for meeting, recruiting students, and virtual events. Because of our remote environment and reduced staffing, Getting Started Workshops will begin in winter quarter.
There is very limited access to campus, and we are following all health and safety guidelines. For this reason, there will not be events held on campus in person this Fall. Clubs and Student Governance groups who have Fall budgets will work with their advisors to determine their ability to host and support low-risk, virtual events. Any virtual events approved will be communicated via newsletter and the campus calendar.
Spiritual Well-being and Holistic Care - NEW
Chaplain Melissa Bennett, Student Activities Assistant Director of Spirituality and Meaning Making, is available for 1 to 1 spiritual care – accompanying students as they navigate college life. Spiritual Care is for everyone – spiritual and non-spiritual, religious and non-religious, you can be from any faith tradition or no faith tradition. It is a campus resource that provides a space to talk about purpose, belonging, community, connection, grief, joy, and deepening your relationship with self and others. Melissa is committed to justice work and can assist you in finding practices that help you feel grounded, feel centered, express your values, find meaning in your role as a student, and help you integrate your learning into your whole self.
The Geoduck Student Union (GSU) will continue to meet virtually via zoom. Their schedule is available and updated.
The Student Fee Allocation Board (S&A Board) will be hiring students and undergoing training this Fall. Applications are available on CODA.
The Clean Energy Committee (CEC) is not in service this year as the fee will be on pause this year. Again, students will not be charged the CEC fee this year. Funded projects from previous years will continue to receive support.
Greeners Planning Activities (GPA) will continue to work and plan remotely and produce a smaller number of virtual events this Fall.
