Does everyone have a tentative date on when campus will be back to regular hours?
I agree with Zach! My prostaff has given me projects to work on and the freedom to explore projects that I’ve wanted to do but not always having the time to do it.
Zach – is your institution paying student work even while they are “online”?
Is there anyone that cannot have students work remotely? We’re only able to offer deep cleaning shifts right now.
How are you all paying your students (financially) if your facilities are closed and your wages budget is dependent on patrons pay to participate in fitness programs?
I’ve had my league supervisor take on esports
we can’t have students work remotely
Zach how do you keep track of hours
clockify is good app to track hours
Cincinnati Student Activities is paying student workers for remote work as far as I know
we are honoring work study grants- all others paid until 3/27
Same here we do not pay them at this moment
00:41:52Mike Brito – R1
Rowan University is letting students get paid for up to 40 accrued sick hours (2 weeks of pay). No pay is available after that right now
At The University of Akron, we are paying students for “regularly scheduled shifts”. Since im basketball registration was finishing up, we are honoring basketball hours and paying our IM students for the basketball season
At Florida International University we are fortunate enough to be able to provide 10hrs a week of paid virtual professional development, so that each and every student staff member can earn some income if they are interested in doing so. We are using LinkedIn learning and ZOOOM
At CWRU, the students can’t work remotely but we will continue to pay students due to the federal guidelines allowing work studies to get paid and we extended it to non work study for the regularly schedule shifts
At Baldwin Wallace University we are not able to have our students work remotely. Only students with federal work study get paid their average weekly hours for the rest of the semester without having to work.Does anyone have any student development ideas for students to keep them connected?
At Arkansas we are trying to give students 5hrs of work a week (Risk Management modules, amending handbooks). We are also honoring work study students pay until they reach their award allotment.
Virtual fitness classes, esports is what we are doing at Stony Brook University
00:45:50Zachary Wallace R6SL
UNLV is also hopping on the Esports train for IMs. Our fitness programs are hosting yoga and other fitness classes through webex/zoom video sessions with a good turnout numbers so far
Since much of the work that our student staff completes is in-person, can folks give examples of the [meaningful] work their students have been able to complete while remote? We’re challenged because we went remote on relatively short notice and while students were on spring break so much of the materials and information we might have sent with them to complete cannot be shared.
00:46:50Diane Yee, MSU Denver
Hi everyone, I’m a Director in Denver and we asked our students to update their resumes (and I can help with suggested edits). But more importantly we’re launching a discord server for Campus Recreation. Also looking to ramp up our social media output
That is a great idea Diane Yee
Remote work I am doing involves creating excel sheets for data entries. My supervisor sent me a very long list of participants so I basically need to go through it line by line and create a more organized spreadsheet.
Minnesota is doing the trivia, FYI. It will be nation wide.
ahhh It was minnesota
Virtual fitness classes are amazing!
00:50:08Juliana Frigeiro – R2
Slack is another great option to engage student staff and club officers. You can create different channels (so some related to work, some more “random”).
did Yoga over Zoom
We are encouraging our staff to get outside and share pictures of Cardinals (SVSU – cardinals :)
We are doing some alternate IM type challenges like a paper football challenge. We just launched it yesterday – made a youtube video to explain how to make it and how to play.
We are working on our supervisor binder – How to… everything
Remote work I have been doing (as a GroupX Student Coordinator) I’ve been able to work on a way for our instructors to teach via live-streaming, creating a well-being BINGO for other PSU members to engage in, continuing evaluations and future training ideas for instructors.
Starting to have students and casual wage staff work on LinkedIn learning courses and select ted talks on customer service, social justice, and professional development. After they do a course or watch a video they will do a google form entry reflection. Paid for their time.
We are a state university and had to refund our student fees so we are utilizing our student staff to help us update our FUSION system – working on giving refunds.
love to hear more about the well-being BINGO from Emily.
We are trying to find development opportunities (such as this), having students help with manuals, looking to do student led discussions about TED talks or readings, GROW conversations with each student, mock interviews
We also are putting up 30 minute group ex classes on our youtube channel so students and staff have access to their favorite instructors at any time that meets their needs.
Since in-person classes are cancelled through the end of the semester, we are making sure that we still move forward with our recognition initiatives, specifically our end-of-year awards. Holding a “virtual banquet” at the end of the academic semester is a good way to still recognize your graduating students as well as those who have gone above and beyond.
University of Nebraska is finding ways for us to do some remote work especially focusing on personal development
00:54:53Diane Yee, MSU Denver
Jackbox through Twitch has been well received
At Willamette U. we are completing the development cycle by having student write a reflection paper on their learning and experiences piece, then the supv. will set a person to person meeting to discuss and provide feedback.
how do you all plan on having a virtual banquet? I know here at ISU we are looking to celebrate our clubs but not exactly sure how to do about it
are you giving prizes for those that complete the bingo?
We are going to try and do a video to display the sports club banquet awards that we still have students able to vote on.
00:57:31Mike Brito – R1
We were going to mail them their awards for seniors & incentive prize winners. For the others who are returning we’ll hand them out when they return
We’re currently working on what prizes we can provide for when Campus opens back up. We are thinking about the classic PSU swag or sweat towels from a previous event we held before the closure.
Thank you Cheyanne, Michael, Juliana, Bailey, Katie, Nick, Zach, and Judith for your leadership throughout this year and for shifting gears to meet the needs for NIRSA students and students everywhere!
Here is a link for the Trivia that Chris mentioned before. Drew Devore is putting it together and will be sharing marketing materials. Flick will be hosting it on Twitch. Thats all that I am aware of currently. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vzt8t5cErHSV_0E7-ddanH7nScOQWXIbLssCWZKfwMo/edit?usp=sharing

MSU Denver is planning to hire a Student Leadership Specialist, but that’s put on hold as the priority from HR is the searches that are currently bringing candidates “to campus” and then to fill faculty needs
I have heard of a lot of my seniors having phone and video interviews. When travel resumes, so will job opportunities. Keep hope.
1st year GA in a hiring freeze, 3 pro staff positions open… no word on hiring professionals or renewing GA contracts :/
My on-campus will most likely be cancelled and move to a video call. What are ways to still get a feel for the culture and knowing if that city/campus is where I want to move?
University of Iowa is still moving forward with interviews but we are only going to be offering zoom calls
Our pro position open is going to all virtual interviews.
Our eSports Coordinator position is moving forward with virtual interviews
01:03:10Leah Hall Dorothy
great advice Darby
Is anyone looking for jobs outside of higher ed? What does that look like for everyone?
I am happy to share about the University of Alabama hiring process
Have any of your institutions canceled spring/summer classes?
I’ve heard virtual (online) interviews but personally I really value the on campus interaction. Agree with Jason.
I had an in person interview that was changed to a zoom meeting and it made me a lot more nervous, but it went well and they are adapting! They were understanding about what is going on as it’s awkward for everybody involved.
Good point Becky! it’s new for everyone
Adapting is so important for everyone right now and its great how flexible we are all being
01:07:39Leah Hall Dorothy
ask for a part of the zoom interview to be with students and GAs as well to give you a good understanding of their experiences
Virtual on campus tours is a great idea! A new way to explore and still show the rec during this chaotic time
Very easy for us to get set in our ways so adapting is going to be key! A lot of universities have hiring freezes in place across campus, so there may be a gap between your virtual interviews and an offer. Continue to stay in touch with your contacts and they are happy to keep you informed with their status in that regard. Best of luck to all of you who are interviewing!
01:09:18Leah Hall Dorothy
Agree with Jason – keep reaching out to mentors and contacts
01:09:18Katie Haarmann – R4
Thanks Jason, that’s super helpful!!
Is anyone still physically at work? We’re able to have the option to work remotely or actually be in our offices.
01:10:46Andrea De Lei – Oregon State Univ.
Utilize online Polling tools like TopHat, etc. if you have a presentation piece that you would typically have attendance participation in an in person setting as well :)
EIU has 3 GA positions open that will need to be filled no matter what.
On Friday we begin a virtual on campus at Wichita State. We are sharing videos of the city and campus. The candidates will have 10-15 minutes to discuss what there first 90 days on the job will look like. Then we will follow that with group questions by Students and Department partners. We are planning on it taking an hour.
Please do not be afraid to reach out and continue to ask questions if you are still interested in the positions that you are applying for! It’s a great way to show that you still care about the positions that you are applying for
I think that asking good questions during any part of the interview is key. Have questions prepared about the culture is always smart. Alabama is moving forward with our hiring process in a virtual way. It will challenge all of us to be creative about sharing our culture and learning more about the applicants as well
01:11:55Mike Brito – R1
Poll everywhere is a nice option too for online participation in a presentation
I am still living in my college town and it is a ghost town.
It’s alright just quiet
Wyoming is already in a very small town and 99% of our students left, it’s a very eerie feeling.
Precor is launching a Free trainer app for Rec programs to assign workouts to Students Faculty and Staff
Question: Summer student staffing. What are your institutions plans?
01:15:53Andrea De Lei – Oregon State Univ.
Question: Has anyone tried to add captions onto their either Live or Pre-programed Event or Program? Do you use any tool or use a current employee?
We are holding off on staff scheduling until we have an estimated reopening date
01:16:29Andrea De Lei – Oregon State Univ.
potentially work for students?
Still interviewing for summer kids camp as of today, this could change at any moment :)
WWU is moving forward with summer programs and hiring until they tell us we can’t
01:16:43Leah Hall Dorothy
reach out to your disability access services on campus
Vid grid has a captioning tool, you request captions and they send them to you like a day later
google meeting automatically does it
We have reduced hours for our Fitness Center in the summer. We do hire additional student staff to work with our overnight camps.
what was the online streaming app?
It is important that if you are releasing a recorded Zoom webinar, you should also get a transcript… that is helpful for individuals with certain disabilities
Summer Staffing – at Dayton we are in a hiring freeze but we are able to hire for summer/fall because the rec is considered essential and will open as soon as the restrictions are lifted
Same with Wisconsin – Stay at home orders
It is so hard to hire for an unknown date of return.
Streamyard I believe was the online streaming app.
Yep that is the app
UW – Madison summer camps are still running as of right now
LOVE that background lol
Is anyone trying remote personal training sessions?
01:20:06Katie Haarmann – R4
please use our info! we are here to help you all in any way we can
Aquatics roundtable is tomorrow at 11 am! PST
Is there going to be a fitness round table?
01:20:48Diane Yee, MSU Denver
Our PT are connecting with their clients to keep them engaged but it won’t affect the # of sessions they have (so free assistance essentially)
Would anyone be able to have a round table for those who run summer kids camp? Would love to figure out potential online training.
are you all posting brackets for esports through IMLeauges or FusionIM then letting the students coordinate it?
Students on the call feel free to reach out to the professionals on here as well if you have any questions especially with advice on this “adjusted” hiring process. We are always happy to help!
How are people that are still hiring getting any buy in from students when we literally have no timetable for any of this?
Summer camps and club sports are coming to the ideas in motion

Hey you all are AMAZING! NIRSA always comes through and you are great student leaders… one thing to please keep in mind, many community members depend on campus rec facilities/programs for fitness/wellness/mental health, etc… please think of ways to make some of these awesome ideas such as videos and virtual wellness available to public!!!
