You are also welcome to join us online. A Zoom link will be provided on Thursday.
Residential Students’ Town Hall
All Residential, Commuter, and International Students: Your student council reps would love to invite you to the OCC this Thursday, November 3 at 5:30 p.m. for tacos! The main purpose of this is to hear your voices and what you would like from the student council this year so we can best represent your concerns. Plus we have such a great community we’ll take any excuse to have free tacos with y’all.
Please come if you’re able! Not only are your voices important, but you need to eat dinner anyway, so why not get a free one.
If you are unavailable, please email your rep with anything you would like to bring up; we’re here for you!
