Peer-led discussion and support

The Devils 4 Devils Community Circle is a peer-led, peer-based, online platform for students to support and connect with each other while taking online classes and practicing social distancing.  Through Zoom, students will meet to describe their experiences with digital learning and remote relationships, learn how other students are responding to these changes and receive understanding, helpful information and suggestions. 

Devils 4 Devils Community Circle Zoom sessions will be hosted by a Devils 4 Devils student facilitator.  All students who participate in a community circle will be provided with information on how to access ASU Counseling Services for therapeutic needs.

Weekly Devils 4 Devils Community Circles sessions will occur Monday – Friday, effective March 30.  Visit the Devils 4 Devils Community Circle sessions webpage to view the weekly schedule and register to participate in Community Circles sessions.
