Virtual Activities

Continue to stay connected with UC!

University College's Office of the Dean of Students is still available to support the academic and personal success of all students during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to work hard finding creative ways to connect with students via online platforms and alternative formats. The purpose of this webpage is to share new and modified programs from University College Student and Residence Life, as well as across the campuses. Please see below for more details.

UC Student and Residence Life have launched daily virtual programming during the week. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to stay tuned! Check out the calendar below:
