Better Together: University Pen Pals

As a winner of the #BearDownMaskUp Challenge, dance major Christina Calden hopes to keep students connected via the University Pen Pals. This new program aims to link students via letters, email and zoom calls, allowing connections to be built while socially distanced.

Sponsored by the Provost’s office, Calden hopes to build communities within the university. “I was worried about freshmen, in particularly the international students, who may have missed chances to build connections due to the pandemic,” she said. “Many students aren’t even in Tucson and I wanted them to still feel connected to the university despite not being on campus.”

As a Filipino-American, Calden encourages all students to join and create everlasting relationships that are strengthened by different cultures.
