New Zoom Backgrounds

Friday, December 9, 2022, 1:45pm


While the holidays represent different things for all of us, they are often a time for reflection and remembrance, gatherings with family and friends, caring, giving, tradition, and celebration. 

The Office of Strategic Communications, in consultation with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Senate Diversity Subcommittee, has created a series of seasonally-inspired Zoom backgrounds. The Holiday Zoom Backgrounds are available online now, and you will also soon find them through your SSU Zoom account. As well, you may download a copy of your favorite backgrounds using the links below.

As we celebrate, here are some helpful holiday reminders:

  • Be respectful of those who celebrate the holidays differently than you or those who do not celebrate at all.
  • Seek the input of your classmates and colleagues when planning campus holiday celebrations.
  • Ensure attendance at celebrations is voluntary.
  • Consider learning about the unique traditions and significance of different holiday practices from your peers, colleagues, and the local community.

Wishing you health, happiness, and cheer throughout the season and in the coming year.
