Virtual Activities and Engagement Opportunities

"Social distancing" means trying to keep others and ourselves safe and well, but it doesn't mean that there aren't things to do and opportunites for everyone to connect. You can continue to participate in or join clubs and other organizations through Engage. You can conduct meetings, or just hang out with friends, using free platforms like Zoom (with available free tutorials), Google Hangouts, and Google Meet (good for student organizations, too). From creating clips on TikTok to having cooking shows with friends on Instagram or YouTube, now is the time to be creative and to to show that Ragin' Cajun spirit and joie de vivre! Please use the hashtag #ulgetinvolved on your social media outlets!
