Resources & Outreach
We want to support students as they complete their studies from home. Here you'll find helpful resources from campus organizations including the Career and Professional Development Center, Student Ministries, Admissions, the Engle Health Center, Minds Matter and others to help students navigate their new normal. Looking for outreach opportunities? You'll also find information on how to serve others in your community during the upcoming weeks.
Tips for Online Student Success: The transition to online learning has not been easy for many students. If you are looking for additional ways to help with this adjustment, these "self-help tips" are a place you can start at! The tips range from how to practice time management, test taking strategies, how to set goals for yourself, ways to connect with peers during this time, and much more.
Want to share the ways you've adapted and found success during this transition? Do you still have some concerns during this time? Email Jocelyn Clippinger, the Director of Student Success at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Murray Library Recognizes Graduating Seniors: Since we can't recognize our seniors with a bookplate this year, we have created a virtual slideshow with their picture and the book cover of a book that inspired them while at Messiah.
