Start showing up for your SPROJ! I’ll be hosting a Zoom room from 2:00 to 3:30 pm every Monday and Friday afternoon where you can work quietly on your project in the virtual presence of your peers. We’ll check in with each other at the beginning and end of the session; in between we’ll mute ourselves and turn off our cameras.
“Work” means anything that pushes your project forward—like making to-do lists, freewriting, composing emails to professors, taking notes on sources, researching. Whatever helps.
Not sure how to get started on your SPROJ? Not to worry. As the associate director for library writing support, I will be happy to meet with you in a breakout room to listen to your ideas and offer guidance.
The Office of Student Activities is collaborating on efforts for virtual engagement with the Bard Houses, the Career Development Office, Chaplaincy, Community Fitness, the First-Year Experience Office, Stevenson Library, Sustainability, Wellness, and student clubs and organizations. Please fill out this form to indicate what programs, groups, dialogues, and events you would like to see. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete the Form
