Campus Life and the A_LAB will be working with Student Involvement and Greek Life to produce a robust array of engaging programming that will be accessible to students remotely. Campus jobs and federal-work study positions will also take place remotely.
All students will have the opportunity to participate in virtual events including, but not limited to wellness and mental health workshops, community forums and discussions on race, culture, and democratic engagement, dynamic speakers on personal and professional development, e-sports, team trivia and virtual gaming, and much more. While safety necessitates the residential experience to look different than it has in past years, residents can still expect opportunities to engage in socially distanced community-building activities and co-curricular programming such as movies on the quad, outdoor picnics, and community campfires. As always, the Student Government Association allocates the entirety of activity fees to student organizations who will also be creating community programming.
We will continue to foster your connection to the city of Atlanta and beyond through a dynamic speaker series designed to create access to city, community, and professional leaders. We will be reaching out to solicit your input on the type of remote programming, events, and speakers you would like to see this fall.
Additionally, we will be offering expanded skill building, mentoring, and leadership initiatives across campus. These resources – such as interactive workshops and pop-up seminars – are designed to help students cultivate meaningful relationships, grow their professional network, and expand their leadership skills. These offerings will be interdisciplinary and allow students to develop applied professional skills and build their resume in meaningful and tangible ways.
