Programs offered through Student Involvement include:

  • ‘Jacket Jottings – virtual engagement newsletter
  • The Buzz 75 – bucket list
  • Adulting/Life Skills Workshops
  • Yellowjacket Activities Crew programming
  • Student Organizations – including training, workshops, and resources

Programs may be offered in-person, but will always offer a virtual format so that all students can participate. To find out more about upcoming programs, check ‘Jacket Hub or Facebook and Instagram.

Yellowjacket Activities Crew

The Yellowjacket Activities Crew programming board will continue to offer free weekly programming through combination of virtual and in-person events with a focus on contactless activities such as trivia, bingo and crafts. In-person events will have limited occupancy in order to maintain physical distance and all attendees will be required to wear a face mask/covering and sign-in with their student ID at the event*. Events will have a virtual component to ensure that individuals that may want to limit their exposure risk have a safe way to participate.

*per CDC, Douglas County Public Health and UW-Superior guidelines

 

Student Organizations

Recognized student organizations will continue to operate and will be encouraged to utilize technology to host meetings and events virtually. To browse student organizations, visit ‘Jacket Hub. You can click on each organization to read a short description or contact a student leader. There is even a “join” button you can click if you want to become a member of an organization. If you need assistance navigating ‘Jacket Hub, contact Student Involvement to schedule a demonstration.

Students are also encouraged to start new student organizations. Schedule a “Get Started” meeting with Student Involvement staff to learn what you need to do to apply for recognition.

As you plan upcoming meetings and events, review the questions in the Fall Programming Considerations to determine the best format while keeping the health and safety of your participants in mind.
 
If you decide to hold meetings and/or events in-person, the Event Planning During COVID-19: Student Organization Guidelines should be reviewed and followed. Be sure you understand what health and safety protocols must be in place. This includes ensuring physical distancing, use of face masks/coverings, and attendance tracking. At this time, attendance at campus events is limited to the campus community. For more information about holding in-person events, review the Best Practices for Your Physically Distanced Programming.

Student Involvement staff will continue to be available to student organizations for guidance on planning virtual and limited in-person events and navigating campus guidelines during COVID-19.
