Holding Steady, Staying Vigilant
Our positive COVID cases are down this week with 15 new positive cases, and a current total of 48 active positive COVID cases.
Thank you to those who are quarantining and isolating, which helps contain the virus and reduce the spread. See more details on WSU’s COVID dashboard.
Spring Courses: In-Person, Online & Hybrid
While Fall 2020 course delivery options shifted over the summer after many students had registered, class delivery methods for Spring 2021 have been decided and are available online now.
Students will know which classes will be in-person, hybrid or online before registration begins in November.
Learn about all the course delivery options from Warrior Success Center advisors. Then discuss with your faculty advisor to determine which options are best for you.
Check In: Green Bandana
Often when people are struggling with mental health, they need someone to talk to who won’t judge them, someone to help them find resources for support. That’s the point of the Green Bandana Project.
By wearing a green bandana on your backpack, you are letting others know that you are a person they can trust to have a conversation about mental health.
Because there are fewer people around campus, there are new ways to virtually sport a green bandana and show your fellow Warriors that you support their mental health.
#CountOnMe: Protecting Your Professors
Many of us might get COVID and barely notice any symptoms, while for others – especially those of us with underlying conditions – COVID could be life-threatening.
We’re counting on every Warrior to do the right thing to protect one another’s health and wellbeing.
“I love my job and I want to continue to teach students and keep them and myself healthy.
I have Type 1 diabetes. To keep myself and my family healthy, I must wear my mask.
Be mindful of your present moments, be creative in finding new ways to do the things you love, and be hopefully optimistic about the future.”
Where to Vote
With less than two weeks until the election on Nov. 3, we encourage all Warriors to either vote early by dropping off your ballot at the County Government Center at 202 W. 3rd St., or vote at the polls in person on Election Day.
There is still time to request an absentee ballot, as long as you’re already registered, at: mnvotes.org.
Whether you’re registered or not, you can vote in person at the County Government Center at 202 W. 3rd St., 8am – 4:30pm Monday-Friday.
If you haven’t registered, bring proof of residence – a photo ID, or a utility bill, bank or credit card statement, or lease or mortgage payment with a name and current address.
Note: If you are living on West Campus, your polling location has changed to the Friendship Center at 251 Main St, near downtown.
Get ready to be mystified and mesmerized by Magician Derek Hughes in East Room, Kryzsko Commons this Saturday at 8pm. Follow the Warrior Entertainment Network on Facebook for details and a Zoom link.
Then enjoy some 90s-nostalgia with a showing of “Space Jam” at Saturday’s Lake Park Drive-In Music & Movies at the Band Shell, along with a performance by the Gully Boys from 6pm – 10pm.
And it’s not too late to get into spooky season and carve—or paint— some pumpkins!
