In an email sent out to Illinois State University students, ISU Housing and Dining expressed a desire to continue to be students’ “home away from home.”
The department has planned a series of end-of-the-semester events for students looking for a fun or relaxing way to connect with their friends from Normal. Students feeling disconnected from campus life can still get a taste of it virtually over the last couple weeks of the semester.
The events kick off with a Trivia Night via Zoom tonight at 7 p.m. Next week, students have an opportunity to showcase their skills from home on 6 p.m. Monday with a Talent Show. Also, on Tuesday, housing has an opportunity for students to socialize with their peers with “Talk About It Tuesdays.” This Zoom meeting will open at 5 p.m.
There are still more events during finals week for students to relax and refresh their minds between exams. From 6-7 p.m. May 5, students can join in a group workout opportunity. Finally, housing events wrap up with a guided meditation and mindfulness session 7 p.m. May 6, allowing students a chance to release their end of semester stresses.
Zoom ID numbers are listed and hyperlinked within the email, which was sent to all Illinois State students with an active housing contract on campus. Students can also visit the housing website for more information and updates on these events.
