Break Out Sessions and Other Online Access

Lory Student Center Room 324

10:00 am  Canvas Credit Union Financial Education

11:15 am  “Creative Chill Out” – Being creative can help us reduce stress by giving our thinking mind a break. Creating something can be restorative, boosts our mood, and takes very little time. In this session, you will experience various ways to bring creative breaks in small moments of everyday life. Creativity can help us be mindful and bring us into a flow state which can be very restorative. No prior skills required. We will also cover some of the well-being support available to students, staff and faculty at CSU through the CSU Health Network. (This session is limited to 30 people, please get there early/on time to get your spot!)

1:00 pm “Fueled by Fear” – Have the knots in your stomach ever paralyzed you from pursuing your goals or dreams? Are you feeling stagnant and unsure how to just dive in? Join us for a discussion with Alisha Zellner on being fueled by fear and engaging your community towards change through sport. Alisha was born and raised in Colorado Springs, CO. She graduated from CSU with a double Bachelors in Psychology and Sociology (Go Rams!), went on to receive her Masters in Justice Policy from UTSA, and is seeking her second in Social Work from MSU Denver. Prior to Law Enforcement, Alisha was a Mental Health Counselor for 5 years in adolescent residential treatment facilities. She has traveled to 13 countries, climbed over seven 14,000 ft mountains, run 40+ races, crossed the finish line of the Athens Marathon, completed 2 Sprint Triathlons, and played full contact semi-professional football. In her spare time, she loves to solve the Rubik’s cube.

Why get a COVID vaccine?

  • Data show COVID-19 vaccines are extremely effective in protecting fully vaccinated people from catching and spreading the virus, including variants.
  • Millions of people have received a COVID-19 vaccine, including thousands of CSU students and employees, under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.
  • Those who are not vaccinated may be required to take public health precautions.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated and get exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case, you will be required to quarantine. This could result in you missing class, work, and social events, and may require you to temporarily relocate to another residence.
