SGA President Chris Davis has a message for the Radford Family
With the fall semester now in full swing at Radford University, Student Government Association (SGA) President Chris Davis is encouraging fellow Highlanders to stay safe and to do their part in helping slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“We all play a factor in this new world we are living in,” said Davis, a senior economics major from Richmond, Virginia.
Davis said students should make wearing a mask, physically distancing and washing their hands a part of their daily lives.
“The more you do it, the more normal it will become,” Davis said.
Also, be sure to fill out the daily Symptom Tracker and make the “Healthy Highlanders” pledge, he added. Other important resources can be found on the University’s reopening website, including the latest mandate to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people both on and off campus.
In addition to monitoring their physical health, students should also be mindful of their mental well-being as they progress through the semester.
Davis cited the University’s Student Counseling Services as an important resource for students who are struggling.
“They should never hesitate to reach out for help,” he said. “We are here for you.”
Staying connected with one another through technology, such as Zoom and social media, keeping up with classwork, calling friends and family and enjoying the outdoors or a favorite hobby are all ways to maintain a healthy and balanced routine.
While this semester is going to look and feel very different, Davis reminds the entire Radford Family that we are all in this together.
