A video created by a group of communications students last week warns classmates about the serious consequences of violating SUNY COVID-19 guidelines and urges them to make safe decisions. In just four days it was viewed more than 7,400 times on Instagram.
Following a large off-campus party on Feb. 12 that put many students and members of the community at risk from potential spread of the virus, the students wanted to make sure their peers are aware of the penalties involved with hosting or attending large gatherings. Suspension and denial of campus access are part of SUNY’s uniform sanction response.
The group, which is working with Professor Caroline Kaltefleiter, the Communications Office and the President’s Office, plans to do a variety of other COVID-related messaging throughout the semester.
