First Things First: A new term means a new intentions survey—be sure to fill out your D-Term Intentions Survey on MyTechFlex as soon as possible. Also, a reminder that there are no classes this Friday, February 26.

Campus Status Updates

How’s everyone settling into the new TechFlex on Campus (with restrictions) status? We know this is tough, but we’re moving in the right direction. As a fellow student shares below, let’s keep it going so we can get back to normal sooner rather than later.

Remember to regularly check the at-a-glance list to see the latest open spaces and opportunities—any changes will be marked “new” or “updated.”

Tips & Resources

Sometimes the best advice is just to make time for a break; we’re here to help you do just that. 

Health & Safety Reminders

We’re glad you’re following the safety protocols, but a quick reminder: just because you’re sitting socially distanced at a table doesn’t mean you can remove your face covering. If you’re not taking a bite of food or a sip of your drink, it needs to stay on. 

Keep working to #ProtectTheHerd, and don’t forget—keep those face coverings on so we can go back to passing out snacks at the fountain and catching up over Dunkin’ sooner rather than later.

A few final reminders:

  • Stop the Stigma: people who’ve had COVID are no longer contagious after they’ve been cleared from isolation. Be kind to each other. For support regarding COVID-related stigma, contact the SDCC at 508-831-5540 or reach out to
  • Be sure to use the Symptom Tracker app every day; it’s our first line of defense in detecting virus on campus
  • Take a minute to review the five possible COVID-19 test result categories so you can better understand your test results
