Game Nights Help Students Connect and Cope

CITY COLLEGE–Husan Ahmed, a student at the City College of New York (CCNY), sent a text to a private WhatsApp group chat late on a Saturday afternoon. “Among Us?” he asked. His classmates from architecture school began to join his Zoom call through the link he sent. They talked about the new semester and their professors and waited for others to show up. When they had six, Ahmed opened the online game, “Among Us.” Game night began.
