Oakland University Student Congress has hit the ground running. One month into the Wolf/Williford administration, OUSC has begun reorganizing and refocusing the overall mission that has been set in recent years.
Following the mantra that every year is a fresh start, we did just that, starting with the switching of some of the offices within the main office of OUSC and cleaning everything out. We started new.
With this fresh slate, we’ve moved into bigger things.
One of our main goals this summer was to figure out everything we wanted to do for the fall and winter semesters and put them in action. This includes initiatives, events and overall structure of the organization.
We’ve begun meeting with administration to discuss key issues for the upcoming school year in hopes that we can have them support what the students want to see happen on campus.
We’ve started planning for events in the fall which would include other organizations and departments on campus as well as in the community.
We’ve began making the connections with organizations like Student Program Board, WXOU Radio and The Oakland Post in order to ensure the next year will be successful and memorable for everyone.
We’ve even been given the chance to attend multiple Orientation Resource Fairs in order to meet some of the incoming students next year, which has proven to be a very efficient way to reach out to the faces of tomorrow on Oakland’s campus.
We’re the voice for the students in a variety of ways. But we can’t do it alone.
We’re calling on the person reading this right now to help us make a difference.
With open legislator spots and multiple committees to get involved with, Student Congress is hoping to find people who are driven to make a difference on campus and let their voice be heard. We want people who want to help make their campus experience an amazing one. People don’t think getting involved is an option here at Oakland and I’m here to tell you that’s a myth.
It all begins with one step: taking action.
If you’re looking to get involved and become a part of OUSC, stop by and visit us. We’re in room 62 in the basement of the Oakland Center. We don’t bite. We’re always looking for people to stop by and tell us their thoughts on what is going on at Oakland.
Besides, we are the voice for the students. Why not let your voice be heard?
Robbie Williford is the Vice President of the Oakland University Student Congress.
