The tulips are blooming and we have crossed our fingers for rain on the Front Range of the Rockies. That can only mean one thing – it’s time to wrap up the academic year! To support your summer writing, we’ve compiled some important resources and helpful tips to get you through the end of the semester and into the summer.
We at CSU Writes thank you for a year of writing bravery, honesty, and hard work. We also recognize we remain in tumultuous times, and we encourage you to take a moment soon to rest, take a deep breath, and celebrate your semester’s work. For now, we’ll leave these support queries with you.

aid securing groceries?
Writing well requires that we eat well. Rams Against Hunger provides multiple resources to students, faculty, and staff experiencing food insecurity.

There are additional Rams Against Hunger Pocket Pantries proximate to campus. You can find those locations here.
a mental health check-in?
Writing well also means caring for our mental health. SilverCloud Health offers self-guided online programs based on Cognitive Behavioral therapy to help you enhance well-being, manage anxiety and depression, improve your sleep, boost your body image, and more. The Nod App offers suggestions for strengthening social ties using evidence-based practices. These online mental health resources are available to you 24/7.
