Looking ahead to September and the fall semester, we can join one another in shared feelings of excitement and curiosity, along with other emotions which naturally come up when facing something new. The newness will be our return to campus and classes during and after the shared experience of a global pandemic, as well as times of social unrest. The plans to bring us all back safely not only carries through in the academic and campus-life arenas, but also in the ways the Wellness Center will continue to deliver services of support for our students.
In times of COVID-19 when physical distancing helped increase our safety, it was all the more evident why research on the greatest predictor of psychological well-being, pointed us to the importance of social connection. This coming fall be ready to learn more about the group options available to our Rowan community as we work to foster spaces where we can come together, feel supported, be vulnerable, learn skills, tools, and be affirmed we are not alone in these times. The wonderful thing is, no matter where you are, on campus, or at home, you will be able to access our services and receive support. We are looking forward to our campus' return and await getting connected with you.
