The first of two wellness days during the Spring 2021 semester is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9.

Since there will be no spring break this semester because of the pandemic, SUNY Cortland’s wellness days are meant to help students recharge and relax. No classes will be scheduled that day and no assignments will be due.

Please remember to be mindful of COVID-19 safety, especially on March 9. Do not attend large gatherings. Do not travel and put yourself at risk of contracting the virus and potentially it spreading in Cortland when you return to campus.

Several campus organizations and residence halls are planning events to coincide with the first wellness day.

Events include:

Monday, March 8

  • “An Evening with Leslie David Baker,” The actor who played Stanley Hudson on “The Office,” 8 p.m. Register online through Cortland Connect.

Tuesday, March 9

  • Recreational Sports will host a “triathlon” in the Student Life Center
  • Free access to the golf simulator in the Student Life Center
  • “Assess and Address Your Stress” with members of the Counseling Center staff
  • Bowling (more details will be provided at a later date)

Many more events will be announced soon. Stay tuned to Cortland Connect, the campus calendar and Cortland Nites on Instagram for the latest information.

Be well and be safe. Enjoy your wellness day. You earned it.
