Spring 2020 & COVID-19
How to make the most out of COVID-19
The reality is that no one has a full understanding of what the next few weeks will bring and when we will return to our normal routines. It is important to be sure to make the most out of this time in the smartest and healthiest way possible.
Please take into consideration that your professors, advisors, professional school staff, etc. Are all experiencing this together and are working hard to make sure that everything moves forward.
We have created this page to help pre-health students succeed throughout the rest of the semester, prepare for upcoming application cycles, and make an impact on your community.
Don't forget to check out our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on taking classes pass/fail, changes to testing dates and application services, and more!
Classes are your #1 Priority:
- Above all, your current semester classes are your number one priority. Your teachers are doing their best to continue this semester as seamlessly as possible.
- Don’t forget to utilize the various student support and service offices. They are there to help with Online Tutoring, WVU Libraries, and Information Technology Services (ITS) and more!
- Don’t forget that the Office of Accessibility Services is still here for you if you need their services!
- WVU has created a new resource for students as we transition to an online learning platform for the remainder of the semester. Please visit the website for more information on Keeping the Momentum and General Student Questions.
- This is a time for you to practice self-care and take control of your mental health!
- Make sure that you are not just staying cooped up inside your home and hanging out on your couch. Go for a walk outside, journal on your reflections of your career choices, workout with friends virtually, and relax.
