In semesters past, the Office of Student Development has made its goal keeping students involved throughout the campus community. While this community might look much different this semester, Student Development has come up with some creative ways to keep students together in the age of social distancing.
Standard fall campus events include the massive Get Involved fair, University Weekend, Day of Service, Meet the Greeks, as well as many other Stockton events held to welcome students back each year. In effort to maintain normalcy, The Office of Student Development says it will do its best to on with these traditions from near or far.
“While the fall semester has kicked off in an unconventional way, our student organizations, fraternities, and sororities are still active, accepting new members, and hosting a combination of in-person and virtual events to engage our Stockton students,” said Lauren Wilson, Associate Director of The Office of Student Development.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, many campus programs have adjusted to meet social distancing measures. This, however, will not stop most programs from continuing on. “Next week, we’re hosting a “Get Involved Week” to promote the many ways to get involved at Stockton. The Virtual Get Involved Fair will be held live on OspreyHub on September 22, 23, and 24 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. each day,” Wilson said.
During the Get Involved Week, students can virtually meet with and learn more about different organizations on campus. Each day, Student Development will also host webinars on involvement in the times of the pandemic. The office has even posted webinars from last week’s officer training on the Student Development Youtube page.
