COVID-19 seems to be all the world is talking about. The constant stream of news, isolation, and uncertainty about what will happen next has us all on edge.
There is much beyond our control, but one thing we can do is provide on-demand help for stress and anxiety. During this challenging time, Sanvello is a place you can go to feel better and meaningfully connect with others—anywhere, anytime.
Premium access to Sanvello is now free for everyone—just reopen the app to find all of the self-care features completely unlocked.
For those with qualifying insurance or sponsorship through your employer or higher education institution, you’ll find even more services available—now and beyond this pandemic.
We need each other more than ever, and together, we’ll get through this.

The Center for Wellness and Counseling staff is making changes regarding delivery of counseling services to students, due to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.
CWC counseling staff will no longer be able to offer in-person office appointments for the duration of spring semester. However, WE WILL be offering students 30- minute WELLNESS CONSULTATIONS by phone with a CWC counselor.
To schedule a WELLNESS CONSULTATION with a CWC counselor, please call Dianne Detloff at 612-330-1707. For more information and resources please access https://www.augsburg.edu/cwc/.
Phone counseling from ProtoCall Services is available 24 hours a day by calling
612-330-1707 and pressing #1. Students may call with any concern or with more urgent matters. This service allows you to connect directly with a licensed mental health counselor.
We sincerely look forward to hearing from you. All of us at CWC care to support your emotional wellbeing the best that we can under these circumstances.
Best wishes and good health to you,

Here are a few good tips from the Center for Disease Control regarding things you can do to support yourself:
Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs
Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. Check out the CWC webpage for additional resources.

In this extraordinary time, the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work is committed to serving Augsburg students through delivering career readiness services and professional development. We are prepared to provide many of our services remotely and are working closely with our employer partners to help keep you informed of their plans. Here are some of the ways we can work with you remotely:
Appointments – Our advisers are taking appointments each week. You can choose to make an appointment by phone or via video conference. Schedule your appointments in Handshake as always, and be sure to select your preferred medium.
Same Day Virtual “Drop Ins” – Starting Monday, April 6th, you will be able to make same day virtual drop-in appointments. These 15-minute drop-ins will be available as an appointment type in Handshake and will be conducted by Google Hangouts or Zoom.
Handshake – Apart from making appointments with our staff, check Handshake regularly as employers continue to post jobs and message students. You can also search for any virtual events that employers may be hosting!
Document Review – We are continuing to review resumes and cover letters. Please have your resume and cover letter as a Google doc and during your appointment you will share it with the coach you are working with in order to review and edit it in real time.
Digital Resources – Visit Strommen’s Community Moodle site for online resources as well as Strommen’s website for links to valuable information.
We know this is a stressful time. If we can be of any assistance to you, please take advantage of the above resources or reach out to us!

If you had a package delivered during spring break or have something that will be delivered to campus and you are either not planning on returning to campus due to COVID-19 we have a couple ways to resolve this.
1. We can return the package to the sender as unclaimed which should result in a refund of your purchase or a message from the sender.
2. If your package was shipped via the United States Postal Service (USPS) we ARE able to forward your package if you provide us an address to send it to.
3. If your package was shipped via UPS, FedEx, Amazon or other carrier there is no included forwarding so we would have to send it via UPS. Prices range from $4-$25 depending on how fast you would like to ship/weight/size. We can take card #’s over the phone if you would like to use this option.
Please let us know when you or someone in your department will be in and we will deliver in that time. Otherwise feel free to pick up your package if you will be around. If neither of those options work refer to the student package guide above.
