Students had a chance to relax on Thursday and Friday with student engagement’s Spa Life event. With midterm week upon campus, many students could need some help unwinding and de-stressing.
Student engagement provided grab-and-go goodie bags for students that included stress balls, face masks, bath bombs, hand lotion, and some relaxation techniques and tips for students to use to help relax after a stress-filled week.
Despite not being able to hold big events on campus, student engagement is still trying to provide fun events and programs for students wanting to get involved.
“This is something that we can provide to the students to be more connected with them,” said student engagement member, Sean Engler.
It’s clear the students are also very appreciative of student engagement for continuing to hold events despite the restrictions with COVID-19.
“I am glad that student engagement is still continuing hosting events for students, especially the freshman,” FHSU student and event attendee Rylee Bretton said. “Their first year of college doesn’t consist of much ideas, so I’m glad there is something for them to still enjoy along with other students.”
Student engagement has had to find a way to hold events like these while still following social distancing guidelines. Regarding their protocols, Engler said they are doing their best to adhere to campus protocols.
“We are following the university’s standards: making sure everyone stays six feet apart, everything is individually packaged and sanitized … all the staff are wearing masks and sanitizing hands, and we are keeping track of everyone who is here,” Engler said.
Student engagement has more events coming up later in the semester. These include Stuff-A-Tiger on Oct. 14 and multiple round table discussions happening throughout the month of October.
