Rocky and Wilson Commons Student Activities (WCSA) have curated a list of activities you can enjoy while staying distanced.


Register for both in-person and virtual events on CCC! There are movies, yoga, trivia, paint nights, and more. Registration is required for in-person events and recommended for virtual events.


Explore Genesee Valley Park (GVP) and go for a walk along the river. Did you know GVP has a golf course? On Sundays, join WCSA for games and activities (registration required).


Take a walk to Mt. Hope Cemetery and learn about Rochester’s history! Did you know Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, and many other notable Rochestarians are buried there? Plus, the cobblestone pathways and stone entryway are perfect photo spots.


Hang out around campus on the brand new outdoor furniture, including Adirondack chairs. You are welcome to gather with a small group of friends as long as everyone is masked.


Enjoy low-risk recreation activities like flying disc game and beanbag toss (as defined by New York State.) Wear your mask, wash your hands before and after, and sanitize the equipment before and after your fun. There are wipes available outside Common Connection in Wilson Commons and in entryways of many buildings. Remember to avoid high-risk activities, but you may see athletic teams practicing utilizing NYS guidelines and under supervision.


Participate in Rochester Traditions like Yellowjacket Weekend and the Activities Fair! Classic Rochester experiences are something you don't want to miss. Join an organization to pursue your passions at the Activities Fair, or show off your dance moves at a virtual concert.


Forgot something? Register on CCC for the Green Line shuttle, which runs Saturdays and Sundays. This route takes you to nearby shopping destinations so you can pick up things you need. Registration is required, limited space available.


Take a walk to College Town to visit the University bookstore! Stock up on your school spirit gear or grab a good book to read - maybe at one of those beautiful new Adirondack chairs when you return to campus!


Enjoy culinary delights in one of the designated campus dining areas! Savor your meal in the dining hall or try one of the new locations such as Feldman Ballroom in Douglass Commons, Hirst Lounge in Wilson Commons, or Hawkins-Carlson in the Rush Rhees Library. Masks may be taken off while actively eating in these locations.


Get creative! Make crafts to decorate your dorm with your friends in small groups outside, remembering to wear masks if closer than 6 feet to anyone!
