Remote Course Instruction
With sincere gratitude for the outstanding work of our student body, we will transition from our temporary remote teaching mode and resume in-person/hybrid teaching on Wednesday, Oct. 14.
What the Public Health Order Means for You
Boulder County Public Health announced a new public health order that is gradually providing flexibility on gatherings for 18-22 year-olds in the City of Boulder. This means everything is staying “as-is” until at least Tuesday, Oct. 13. On that day, Boulder County will assess and provide further guidance on gathering requirements. Here is some guidance on what to expect with dining and food options, exercise, socializing, athletics and more.
Tips for Coping With COVID-19
Many of us have had to make big changes to our everyday lives in the face of uncertainty and hardship related to COVID-19. It’s important that we show ourselves compassion as life continues to evolve. Here are some ideas to help you cope and practice resiliency during COVID-19.
Many of our fellow Buffs are feeling anxious right now. Some students are worried about finishing classes remotely and adjusting to online learning. Others are feeling concerned for loved ones as we try to slow the spread of COVID-19. If you need counseling support can make an appointment for a virtual walk-in session with Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) by calling 303-492-2277 or visiting Counseling Services.
Group Therapy Sessions
Process therapy groups are another opportunity for students to connect with other students to discuss topics like anxiety, depression, family dynamics, interpersonal concerns, and more. It can be a useful space to receive support for concerns going on in your life and to grow personally in your ability to connect deeply with others. If you’re interested, schedule a Telescreen appointment through the CAPS website. From there, you will meet with a therapist who can help you decide which group will be the best fit for you.
If you are interested in joining a process therapy group, please email Leeds embedded Therapist Megan Shih.
Student Emergency Fund
We understand that the need to move to remote learning has created new time-sensitive needs and hardship for some students. Some students are wondering whether they can pay rent, buy food or afford to continue their education in light of the extensive impacts of the pandemic. This fund helps students in need pay bills due to lost wages, secure technology for remote learning, and gain access to food and health care. Learn more and apply here.
Self-Care On a Budget
Self-care involves intentionally taking care of your own mental, physical, and emotional health, and now more than ever, self-care is extremely important. Self-care activities can vary from treating yourself to a fancy coffee to getting enough rest. Here are some ways you can practice self-care that won’t cost a dime. Learn more.
Although our physical office is closed, we are still here for you for advising and registration help. You can continue to schedule appointments with your academic advisor here.
Buff Pantry Now Open
The new Buff Pantry is now open for students. Buff Pantry was created to help students who may not know how they are paying for their next meal with rising rent and housing costs, potential job losses, medical expenses, and other issues as a result of the pandemic. The pantry is located on the first floor of the UMC. Make an appointment between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. and be sure to fill out this form before your first visit.
Designed by your fellow Buffs, SkoTogether Dinners are way to give students a chance to connect with others safely during this challenging time. Each dinner is held over Zoom with a student moderator to get conversations going and one-on-one breakout rooms where you can meet someone new. Dinners have already begun. Sign up online to participate!
