Online resources for students, all in one place

As Colorado State University students settle into the third week of online courses, we have compiled online resources available to students to assist with learning, technical difficulties and overall health so that students do not have to go on a link scavenger hunt.

Resources available through the Health Network 

The CSU Health and Medical Center still offers in-person services for emergent needs only. According to their website, these include accidents, injuries or acute pain. Medical services are available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students must call 970-491-7121 before going into the Health and Medical Center.

If students think they have COVID-19, they can call the Health and Medical Center to discuss their symptoms and to receive advice on if they should seek medical care, they can report their symptoms to Larimer County and they can review recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on what to do when sick.

The Health Network Pharmacy is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and now offers curbside delivery. Students going into the pharmacy must enter through the north entrance of the Health and Medical Center. Call 970-491-1402 with any questions. 

All counseling services and psychiatry appointments will continue over the phone or through videoconference. New psychiatry intake appointments will be provided through videoconference. Students with scheduled appointments will be called by their provider at their appointment time. Those who need immediate support can call 970-491-7111 at any time. To schedule new counseling appointments, students should call 970-491-6053 during the drop-in hours listed on their website. 

The Health Network also has a list of resources to help with managing anxiety and general mental health around COVID-19 and will be updating their homepage each week as service access evolves.

Resources for learning 

The Institute for Learning and Teaching will continue to offer the spring success workshops now through a free Canvas course. They will have a course on how to be successful in online classes on April 8 from 6-7 p.m. and April 9 from 5-6 p.m.

On the TILT website are multiple learning resource documents and presentations, online learning tools and online study resources. The TILT tutoring page also has links to resources for difficult subjects

The Chemistry Learning Resource Center will continue operations online through a Canvas course students can self-enroll in.  

The Writing Center offers video appointments and online feedback. 

Resources available through Academic Computing & Networking Services

Academic Computing & Networking Services has a full page of links to resources for students who need help accessing technology. Along with Canvas and technology support from ACNS, the Morgan Library has a brief guide on how to quickly access their off-campus resources, and they can loan students laptops through May 18, though students are currently being placed on a waitlist.

Students who used the assistive technology rooms at Morgan Library can reach out to the Assistive Technology Resource Center by phone or email to find alternative solutions. The ATRC also has a list of free AT resources available on their website. 

Students who see access barriers to their online course can report them through the Student Disability Center. 

Many textbooks are now available online as well. Contact your professor or visit VitalSource through the CSU Bookstore, RedShelf or Wiley. Access instructions are available on the ACNS Keep Learning page. 

Resources from the campus rec center

Although the recreation center is closed indefinitely, they have fitness content going up on their social media accounts and videos uploaded to their YouTube channel. 

We will continue to update this as more resources become available.

About the Contributor
Serena Bettis
Serena Bettis, Editor in Chief
Serena Bettis is your 2022-23 editor in chief and is in her final year studying journalism and political science. In her three years at The Collegian, Bettis has also been a news reporter, copy editor, news editor and content managing editor, and she occasionally takes photos, too. When Bettis was 5, her family moved from Iowa to a tiny town northwest of Fort Collins called Livermore, Colorado, before eventually moving to Fort Collins proper. When she was 8 years old, her dad enrolled at Colorado State University as a nontraditional student veteran, where he found his life's passion in photojournalism. Although Bettis' own passion for journalism did not stem directly from her dad, his time at CSU and with The Collegian gave her the motivation to bite down on her fear of talking to strangers and find The Collegian newsroom on the second day of classes in 2019. She's never looked back since. Considering that aforementioned fear, Bettis is constantly surprised to be where she is today. However, thanks to the supportive learning environment at The Collegian and inspiring peers, Bettis has not stopped chasing her teenage dream of being a professional journalist. Between working with her section editors, coordinating news stories between Rocky Mountain Student Media departments and coaching new reporters, Bettis gets to live that dream every day. When she's not in the newsroom or almost falling asleep in class, you can find Bettis working in the Durrell Marketplace and Café or outside gazing at the beauty that is our campus (and running inside when bees are nearby). This year, Bettis' goals for The Collegian include continuing its trajectory as a unique alt-weekly newspaper, documenting the institutional memory of the paper to benefit students in years to come and fostering a sense of community and growth both inside the newsroom and through The Collegian's published work. Bettis would like to encourage anyone with story ideas, suggestions, questions, concerns or comments to reach out to her at editor@collegian.com.
