Stories from a Distance encourages students to find community through conversation. Students can expect to be welcome into a virtual space (over Zoom) created by and for students looking to invest in meaningful connections within their campus community over the Summer.

This week will only have 2 sessions, and will be our last regular programmed week as we approach August with different activities and programs for you to stay involved!

Here’s what this coming week will look like:
