Mindfulness Techniques to Cope with the Effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic
This presentation will provide mindfulness techniques for adjusting to the “new normal” of virtual learning and discuss mindfulness tips and tricks for the student in the age of the pandemic.
Nutrition During COVID-19
Nutrition is important during the COVID-19 pandemic. What we eat and drink can affect our body’s ability to prevent, fight and recover from infections. A healthy diet is key to supporting our immune systems, as well as reducing the risk of other health problems, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes and some types of cancer. Learn about healthy eating habits, easy meal ideas with what is in your cupboard, and food safety during COVID-19.
Alcohol During COVID-19
Up to 1/3 of college students say they’ve participated in binge drinking. On top of that, the American Heart Association says alcohol sales and consumption have gone up during the pandemic. Drinking alcohol has effects on physical health, increasing the risk of liver and heart disease, as well as worsening anxiety and depression. It also negatively alters memory, judgement, and decision making. Learn about safer consumption of alcohol, alternative coping mechanisms to the stress and anxiety of the pandemic, and the alcohol-related resources available to you during COVID-19.
Adults need 7-9 hours of quality sleep a night. College students only average 6–6.9 hours a night, and only 11% sleep well consistently. Getting enough sleep is vital for your academic success and your overall health. Sleep deprivation leads to problems with memory, planning, and learning. Sleep deprivation increases the risk of accidents and injuries, as well as weakens the immune system. It also contributes to long term health problems like heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Getting enough sleep is vital for your academic success and your overall health. Learn about why sleep is important and tips about how to get better sleep.
Safe Sex During COVID-19
Data suggest that at least 60-80% of college students have engaged in casual sex. Surveys from the previous year have shown that large numbers of young adults have broken quarantine restrictions to have sex. While there is nothing wrong with “hooking up,” it is important to understand what constitutes safe sex. Ensuring consent, preventing the spread of STIs, appropriate use of contraception, and, in 2021, taking measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are all important methods of keeping yourself, and your partner, safe. In this webinar, you will learn about the basics of sexual health, protocols for safe sex, and ideas for dating and safer sex during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Food Insecurity Resources on WSU Campus
This project seeks to educate food insecure students on resources and our poster outlines both state-wide and university-led programs. Food insecurity means more than lacking access to nutrition – it is associated with health problems such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, sleep disturbances, high blood pressure, cognitive impairments, and diabetes. College students are particularly vulnerable to food insecurity and may experience poor educational outcomes like lower GPA and lower rates of degree completion as a result.
Approximately 30% of college students are food insecure, but there are many ways to help. WSU offers multiple food assistance resources: The WSU Food Pantry, WSU Farmers Market, the Warrior Meal Share Program and more.
The College Student Hunger Act of 2021 also makes food insecure college students eligible for SNAP and MiBridges benefits. The problem is that many students are either not aware of these programs or their eligibility to use them.
Want to help? Visit thew.wayne.edu for more information on how to donate to or volunteer at the W Food Pantry and Wardrobe..
