Get Connected to Student Life!

You’ve got your schedule, you’ve logged into Blackboard and your Central Piedmont email. What’s next on your list? GET INVOLVED!

Student Life has spent the summer designing fun virtual student experiences and we look forward to a year of social spaces, plenty of opportunity to build personal and professional skills, and ways that you can connect with other students who share your interests and goals. We might be at a distance from one other, but connection still matters (and it helps you be a better student).

Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Welcome Week: Some fun, including trivia, games and a virtual student club fair!
  • E-Sports: New for 2020! We know lots of you are gamers, and we think this will be a popular addition!
  • Civic Engagement: 2020 has been an important year for our country and community. Find ways to connect to voting, volunteering, important issues, and more!
  • Leadership Development: You can learn more about your talents, developing skills for your career. Our Summer Leadership Academy was popular, and we’ll have new opportunities for brand new and returning student leaders.
  • Current issues: Look for programs and conversations about racial justice, inclusion, making change, and asking tough questions.
  • Wellness: These days can be difficult for everyone, so learning healthy strategies for managing stress and anxiety are important skills.
  • Student Clubs: Virtual organizations are possible! Look for our club fair Aug. 20 and club interest meetings on the calendar soon.

New Virtual Sensoria Events

The 2020 Sensoria festival had to be canceled, but many Sensoria events have now been adapted for your virtual access and participation. They’re available on the Sensoria website​! Tour the student art show. Watch a student’s short film. Join live “how-to” presentations on civic engagement and goal-setting, even when you have to stay home.

You might even earn extra credit for a relevant class for participating. It doesn’t hurt to ask your instructor. Thanks for checking it out, and stay well.
