It’s my first year and I came to college to have an experience but Covid has made it really difficult. I find that I’m having troubles with my mental health because I am all alone in my room because of these guidelines that the school has. How do I fix this?

Dear alone during Covid,
With all of the guidelines that we have to follow, it can be really hard to get the social aspect of college. The best thing you can do is make sure that if you need help with a mental health issue, reach out to the Wellness Center and see if there’s any way that they can help. There are so many different ideas on the Internet about what you can do in your own room by yourself. If you want that social aspect of college you can also check out the events that organizations put on on campus.
I’m thinking of rushing a frat but don’t really have friends that I know in frats so I’m going in knowing no one. Could I still join one?
You should definitely consider rushing! Rush week is the week for you to get to know the fraternities and get to know what they are about. I would say go to as many of the events that week that you can and get to know the people that make up the fraternities on campus.
