CHHS professors are here for you through uncertain times

The College of Health and Human Sciences wants to let you know in these difficult times that we’re still here for you. Please reach out to our faculty and staff in the coming weeks so we can support you in every way we have available.

For now, though? Here are some words of advice, tips, and uplifting messages from CHHS professors to our students as we adapt to learning online full time. One thing that will never change at CSU is the way our campus community pulls together when things get rocky. After all, Rams take care of Rams.

With your help, with your kindness, with your patience, we will get this done. Will it be perfect? No. Will it be pretty? Not always. But we will continue to deliver a high-class education that you can be proud of? Absolutely. Take care of each other, be flexible, and we will get through this. See you again soon!

We really miss you guys here in Fort Collins. Know that all of us, faculty and staff, are here for you guys 100%. So definitely feel free to reach out to us if you guys need anything. We’re trying to make the most of this semester going forward online. I know it’s not ideal but you definitely want to learn that there’s definitely some perks to remote work. For example, wearing business on top and PJs on the bottom.

Hello students. Hope you are doing well and are ready to embark upon an online journey with us. I just have one piece of advice. Try to go outside at least once a day and take a walk, while practicing social distancing of course. You won’t regret it.

Here at CSU we’re working very hard to pull together a semester for you that isn’t quite ending like we all thought it would. But, like good rams, let’s show some patience, some kindness, some flexibility, and we’ll all make it through this. I wish you only the best. Take care and be safe.

We have exciting new adventure in front of us. All of us moving into online learning. I just want to tell you that it’s new for all of us. We’re gonna have hiccups and we’re all gonna get through it. Your biggest job is to make sure that you keep yourself healthy. If you have any questions, please reach out! We’re here for you and we can help you. If we don’t know, then we’ll try to get some answers so that we can keep helping.

You know, the next couple of weeks are going to be quite the adjustment. So, let’s try to remember to do the best we can, and re-engage our community out of kindness, respect, and compassion. You should all know that everyone of us at CSU has your back. So, be healthy, Rams.

I want to encourage you with a saying: In all labor, there is profit. Some of you have been working really hard toward graduation or an event or an athletic competition, and it’s not going to happen the way you thought. You have not wasted your time or your energy. And, it may not appear like it right now, but one day you’re going to get to see the profit of your labors. And we’re here cheering you on.

HeadshotWendy DeYoung, Health and Exercise Science

We’re excited about this. I hope that you enjoy what is in your future over the next several months. I think it will be very good and will keep us all safe. That is the goal. I encourage you to take every step to protect your health and wellness for your sake and the sake of your family and friends. So, with that being said, we are Rams. We are strong, so I encourage you to go get on your green and gold. Grab your computers, and let’s do this.

Hey everyone, I miss you. I’m so sorry that we’re all having to go through this right now. Please know that we are all in this together. Your faculty are here for you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you. Your faculty are learning how to teach online, just like you’re learning to be a student online, but we’re all gonna get through this together. Take care of yourself and go wash your hands.

HeadshotKara Coffino, Education

Welcome back Rams. It’s going to be an exciting and unique end to the semester. Please remember to take care of yourselves, take care of each other, and reach out to us to let us know how we can support. Your professors care deeply about you and we’re just a video conference away.

HeadshotRick Perry, Health and Exercise Science

Just know that as we move into the new part of the semester, everyone is focused on how things are gonna be different. But rather focus on what’s gonna be the same, which is your awesome, excellent, kick butt attitude. Good luck, have fun, know that I’m here for you.

HeadshotJennifer Aberle, Human Development and Family Studies

A lot has changed over the past couple of weeks, but let me assure you that what has not changed and what is quite certain is our dedication and commitment to you. We are so very proud of you and happy to walk alongside you right now!

Teaching from my dining room is not something I ever expected to do. Hang in there. We’ll get through this together.
