Virtual Activities & Events

Looking for something to do while we’re social distancing (remember, 6 feet away and wash your hands!)? We’ve got a few ideas to keep you entertained from wherever you are.

Virtual Event Planning

Is your student organization working through logistics of how to turn your event into a virtual opportunity? SLICE is here to help every step of the way to make it possible! Set up a zoom meeting with a SLICE staff member to discuss. We’ll keep updating this site with SLICE/University-sponsored virtual events as well, so keep checking here and @SLICEatCMU on Instagram!

Looking for tips for creating your own virtual events? Watch the Student Organization Virtual Success Panel to hear from your fellow student leaders!

Animal Webcams
