Video: Tips for Students on How to Get Involved at the Curry School


As we settle into a new school year, student affairs staff share details on upcoming events plus four tips for how students, online or on-Grounds, can stay connected throughout the semester.

In the first installment of this year's live video series, Online Student Support Specialist Bernadette Poerio and Director of Student Affairs Jessica Livingston discuss upcoming September events and advice for Curry School students, online or on-Grounds, on how to get involved. This semester, events and opportunities will be planned around monthly themes: Settling in September, Opportunities in October, Know Yourself November, and Decompress December.

"Especially this year, we want to be intentional with the programming and different events that we offer," said Poerio. "We're working on these events to make sure students are comfortable and are aware of all the resources available to them."
