Dear CSN Students,
I hope this message finds you well and that you’ve settled in and are getting accustomed to the new way of life we’re all experiencing. Many people in our community have been directly affected by the ongoing crisis, including you. I know you’ve been through a lot, and I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge that.
You may not have signed up for remote classes, but because of the worldwide pandemic we are facing, everything changed within the span of a week. Many of you have had to learn how to use new online platforms like Zoom or Webex. We know it has not been easy.
You’ve done an amazing job adjusting to a fully remote environment. Many of you have already taken advantage of the remote student services we’ve made available, such as tutoring or advising. We worked hard to set it all up because we know you need to successfully complete the semester, despite the circumstances.
It has taken a focused effort by you and your instructors to get this done. Individual acts of kindness, determination, hard work and commitment led us to where we are today. We are not done improving upon what we’ve built, but I think it is time to call attention to those people who have allowed us to succeed when that seemed impossible only a short time ago.
I want to hear those stories. I want everyone to hear those stories. Tell us about someone who made your journey through this just a little bit easier, and allowed you to stay in school. A community organization? A family member? Someone from CSN’s faculty or staff, or maybe a fellow student.
Tell us tell how much their efforts have meant to you over these last several weeks.
We have created an online message board where you can post these good news stories. You can also tweet them by tagging @CSNCoyote and using the hashtag #ShareYourCSNstory. Please take advantage and celebrate the good in our CSN family.
