“Now that classes have moved online for the remaining Spring 2020 semester — and will remain online for summer semester, too — we wanted to ensure the resources on Jags Care reflect that,” said Gina Thurman, associate dean of students and director of Student Advocacy.
“We want to show students that we’re still here to support them, even if they’re not physically on the campus.”
On the site, students can apply for aid with the Student Emergency Fund, report any online learning needs with the Student Technological Needs survey, learn about donating to students in need and more. Students who remain in the Augusta area can even request food delivery from the Open Paws Food Pantry.
The site also has information on suicide awareness and prevention, and information for local and national mental health hotlines.
More student wellness resources can be found on the Health & Wellness section of the Virtual AU website.
