A Surprising New Finding From Our University Partnerships

Students riding scooters at Texas State University campus

Spin operates e-scooter programs at more than 20 college campuses across the country. Our university partners choose to partner with Spin to bring e-scooters to campus to provide sustainable alternative transportation, giving students a quick and convenient way to arrive at class, fitness centers, labs, extracurricular activities, and more. E-scooters are a naturally socially distanced mode of transportation, which more University partners are seeing as a valuable amenity to add to campus as shuttles and buses are operating at lower capacity.

However, as 2020 brings new challenges and changes to campus life, a wonderfully simple reason to bring e-scooters to campus has presented itself: joy. E-scooters are becoming more than a means of essential transportation; they are providing a mental break and an opportunity to spark joy for students and faculty alike.

We caught up with our partners at Texas State University to explore this aspect of an e-scooter program on campus:

“College life has definitely been different from my past experience. I’m usually a lot more mobile than I was before and so that kind of created a different need. I’ve noticed that people just hop on a e-scooter just to relax, go and catch the breeze, or check out all the beautiful corners of campus.”

— Catching Valentinis-Dee, SGA President at Texas State University

In a campus environment where students and administration are concerned with mental, physical, and social well-being, it has become increasingly important for students to find outlets and take breaks from their dorms and apartments. For many Texas State students, e-scooters have been the vehicle to decompress and have fun. Students are taking longer trips than we’ve seen in the past and finding creative ways to spend time in a safe and socially distanced manner with friends on e-scooters.

As we head into a new semester in the spring, we look forward to working with our existing and new University partners to provide essential transportation through a safe, socially-distanced amenity that sparks joy on campus.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
