#UIWCommCares Hosts Workout Sessions for Students and Faculty


April 24, 2020 - The Communication Arts Department began a social media initiative shortly after the extended Spring Break called #UIWCommCares. Faculty began hosting #UIWCommBreakfastClub Zoom meetings where they cooked breakfast with their families and encouraged students to participate. Students quickly joined in whipping up their own breakfast dishes live amongst their peers.

Within the last two weeks, Dr. Darlene Carbajal, Associate Professor of Communication Arts, has led two 30-minute workout sessions for students and faculty. The workout does not require any equipment, other than an optional workout mat, and some water for the designated water breaks. The video can be found on YouTube or at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRZcZgSgSHI&t=1s.
