Campus Recreation & Core Connect

Written By: Celia Garcia, ‘21 Marketing Operations Assistant

Core Connect Tiers

Core Connect is USD’s COVID-19 action plan to safely return to small group, in-person activities on campus.  Although San Diego County recently moved into the Red Tier, campus is currently still in the Purple Tier and "Party of One." According to the email shared from Dr. Donald Godwin, campus plans to move into the Red Tier beginning April 12th, pending University COVID test results. This means that some in-person activities may be allowed with gatherings of up to 10 students! Please do your part in helping keep campus healthy so that we can successfully make this transition.

What Does This Mean for Campus Recreation?

So, what does this mean for Campus Recreation? Campus Recreation is hoping to run 2-3 in-person events leading up to Finals Week, should we switch into the Red Tier.  As long as our campus continues to practice safe habits recommended by the County and our campus, we will be able to host some fun events. These events may include Paddleboard Yoga, an outdoor fitness class, and more! This is definitely something to be excited about, so we hope everyone stays safe and helps in the continued reopening of Campus Recreation!
