Virtual Events

The Mental Health week started Monday with the “Students Checks”. The “Students Checks” provides students with the opportunity to let the SRC and UNB know how they feel regarding mental health wellness and how it can be helped through SRC’s social media pages.

The events on Wednesday include picking up Bell Let’s Talk kits and online giveaways with chances to win gift cards. Students will be able to sign up to pick up free items outside the SRC office in the Thomas J. Condon Student Centre building. The online giveaways will be posted on SRC’s social media on the same day.

Thursday’s event is a virtual trivia night on the SRC’s Discord server from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Gift cards will be given as prizes.

Lastly, the event on Friday will be a virtual Kitchen Party from 6 to 9 p.m. In the Discord server, students will have the chance to talk informally in a designated space.
