Strategies for staying connected to other people

Even if we limit how much face-to-face time we spend with others on campus, connecting with family and friends might be more important than ever. And staying in touch with instructors, classmates, and group mates is still important for continued classwork.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Schedule video calls with friends and family. Talking with loved ones is often really helpful when you’re stressed or nervous about something. Taking a break to have a laugh is also important.
  • Use Webex or Microsoft Teams to connect with classmates, and tutors to talk through a tough problem
  • Attend virtual office hours or study groups, workshops so that you can stay up on your coursework.
