It’s all online for Western Illinois University for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, and the Office of Student Activities (OSA) has jumped into the digital mix with a new site for students and student organizations.
The virtual programming site launched this morning at bit.ly/WIUOSAVirtual to give students access to resources while they are studying remotely. The OSA also established a virtual meetings tips site at bit.ly/WIUOSAVirtualTips.
“We have to be even more innovative and creative during this time. While we aren’t physically together, we have to try to find ways to keep in touch and maintain those relationships we’ve built on campus through student activities,” said Nick Katz, interim OSA director. “We are missing our students and the energy they bring to our daily lives, and if we can put them in touch with us and with each other, then that will be the next best thing as we get through this together.”
