By now, you’ve probably noticed: Spokane Falls Community College is comfortably – and safely – providing the lion’s share of its instruction and student services remotely.
While that’s great and wonderful and amazing for public health and safety, it can be a tad woeful for those who prefer face-to-face interaction. Especially when it comes to difficult subjects in class or hard-to-navigate roadblocks in real life, like connecting with community.
That’s all to say, there is hope yet. At SFCC we’re doing our darndest to make sure the unique Falls experience is still available to you in your living room (or office, or bedroom or…tree trunk).
Every week on Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., our incredible faculty and staff in Counseling Services are holding Zoom sessions to help you transfer to a university.
What’s more, our Peer Services staff have created a (mostly) daily virtual space open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., where students can drop by and speak to a tutor or another student, to seek support or just share resources.
Our MOSAIC Center is also holding multiple Zoom lounges a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for students looking to connect and learn about different cultures, find classmates with similar experiences, and/or become an ally for new friends.
Remote anything is difficult – I should know. After all, I'm working from home, too (no, I won't tell you where). But it doesn’t have to be the world’s largest roadblock.
In fact, where we’re going, we don’t need roads!
