Something as simple as talking to someone can help you feel better, improve your grades and manage stress.

 

 

Peer-led discussion and support

Devils 4 Devils Community Circles

Devils 4 Devils Community Circles

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.
