Muir Online & Remote Engagement

Greetings Muirons! In this unprecedented and uncertain time, if we know one certain thing about our Muir community it is that we are there for one another. Near or far, Muir College wants you to know that moving remotely does not mean that we will stop providing you opportunities to engage with each another and your college. This page will help you stay up to date on the happenings of JMC and provide a way to connect to various resources still available to you as students.

  • March 30, 2020 - Harper Estus ('22, Cognitive Behavioral Neuroscience) Hello Muirons! Something that has been helping me with having to stay at home, is creating a schedule for the week and sticking to it every day. My schedule is composed of: classes, office hours, study time, work, exercise time, and time for calling a friend/loved one. Keeping to a schedule helps me feel more productive and helps me notice when I should study and when I should relax. During this time, it is really important to self-care and not over-work yourself. Try to find what helps you relax, and make it a PRIORITY! Stay happy and healthy.
