BRISTOL, R.I. – Students have been working hard all semester, balancing academics with on-campus activities, all while protecting their negative COVID test results.

It was time for a little break.

In-person and remote classes were canceled – Surprise! – on Thursday, giving all undergraduate students time to catch up on some self-care and community. A handful of opportunities were scheduled throughout the day, including a meditation session, arts and crafts and a variety of outdoor fun and food options, but largely the day was meant to be an unstructured reprieve.
