We have all been on quite the ride as our world transitions through this experience together. As we manage our new normal, we are committed to sharing and providing resources and support, engaging with students remotely, and making decisions in the best interest of our entire Kent State Community. Although we are each impacted by the changes in different ways, you are not alone, and we are in this together. Remember: We are here, we care, we are a resource and we always believe that Flashes Take Care of Flashes!
NOTE: First and most importantly, I want to say that nothing in this post is meant to shame anyone in any way. If getting out of bed is all you can accomplish, then you keep on keepin’ on. I don’t want ANYONE to think that I am trying to make anyone feel bad about what they are or are not able to do in this unprecedented time. Lord knows, I’ve had days where getting out of bed and feeding myself have been the biggest accomplishments of the day.
That said, if you need a little inspiration, maybe this will help.
