Let’s Talk Dialogue Series:
A large part of being a university student is being able to meet and make connections with the overall campus community. If we were on campus, this would happen naturally - we would bump into each other, make friends in waiting areas, and meet up in the Student Union. Our online learning environment has changed the way we build community at SJSU. If you are feeling isolated attending virtual classes, come hang out with ACCESS advisors and fellow CoSS students in a lounge-like space to make friends, have conversations about online learning, or chat about anything you want!

  • Various Wednesdays 1:00pm - 2:00pm (Starts on 09/23/20)
