When sheltering in place and practicing social distancing, going outdoors to spend time in nature can seem like an impossible task. Many of us are itching to get out of our stuffy homes for some fresh air. Fortunately, one way to solve these quarantine quandaries is by investing in indoor house plants!

COVID-19 is still wreaking havoc on California residents this year and staying home has proven to be the most effective precaution to avoid contracting the virus. Due to instruction being conducted virtually this semester, many students who would typically be moved into the dorms or an apartment near campus are saving money and learning from the comfort of their parents’ or family homes. With more time spent around family members, students may find themselves irritated and resort to excessive screen time getaways. However, a shift in one’s mindset from ‘I wish I was somewhere else’ to ‘I have everything I need right here’ will encourage positive relationships within your family.

Updates on how alternative instruction will impact SRWC programs and services

As students, faculty and staff are aware, the Student Rec & Wellness Center (SRWC) has been physically closed since the COVID-19 pandemic spread to our region. The SRWC continues to be mostly closed until further notice.
