Due to the Pandemic, both new and current students have had to learn to work in exceptional ways. Remote studying from their homes or student halls.
Students have had to face many social challenges, including being unable to experience the usual thriving campus environment. This has resulted in students reporting that they feel a loss of belonging to a campus community.
To help combat this here are some helpful ways to feel more connected
University societies may be holding online events to enrich your interests and build connections. You can find more information about Edinburgh Napier’s societies by clicking here.
Socialising apps are a great way for freshers to talk with new people
Why not email your professors or lecturers to find out about networking events and professional contacts- they may even need a hand with a project or two!
If you are missing your fitness classes at the gym, or evenings at the cinema… you could join a zoom class or even host a movie night from the sofa of your home!
