I’m In (Even when I can’t be)

Fun, Weekly Online Activities for Staff and Students

There’s no doubt life has changed considerably over the last few weeks. Although we may be physically separated, we can still be socially and mentally connected. Join us online for engaging and interactive activities. We’re in. Are you?

The Student Life enrichment team and LCCSU are creating exciting weekly activities to entice all students and staff to engage and hangout online. You will be able to interact with other students and staff members who share similar interests or want to discuss specific topics. It will be a supportive, connected and ultimately fun environment. Everyone is welcome (you just need a college email address to access for free). Download the Google Hangouts App to your phone or log into your college Google account on your laptop/chromebook to get involved.

The activities will be varied and aim to include something to appeal to everyone. Topics will include:

  • Exercise and physical activity
  • Wellbeing and mental health
  • Healthy eating and recipes
  • Fun activities
  • Current affairs and discussion
  • Careers opportunities

It’s up to you how many sessions you want to join or how long you stay – you can just dip in and out or stay for each and every activity.

The activity timetable will be updated every Friday. It will list a brief description of each activity, the time and date, and a Google Hangout link. See the latest timetable below.

For the latest information please follow our social media pages (TwitterInstagramFacebook).

We look forward to seeing you online.
