Welcome to "ISU Onstage", a brand new radio show that highlights the wealth of talent right here on our campus! Each week, KISU is proud to present recorded music, theatre, and other exciting collaborations performed by ISU students and faculty. For this episode, we will be listening to recordings of music, poetry, and short stories from the 2020 edition of Black Rock and Sage.

Back at the inception of the Mind Tap series, which was around a year ago, the Mind Tap team sat around a table and discussed important stressors to people’s mental health. The list of stressors we came up with that day is now wildly outdated, thanks in a large degree to Covid-19 and the public health emergency that has swept the United States and the world. Students are a group greatly impacted by Covid-19 because they are away from home, away from their normal support networks and are increasingly socially isolated due a transition to online tuition.

This week on Mind Tap, Scott Greeves talk to ISU freshman, Emma Watts, about being a student during the Covid-19 pandemic and the Mind Matters book that she helped to publish.
