Weekly Events

Wednesday's with the O

Wednesdays, 12:00-1:00 PM, LBC G04

Every Wednesday The O offers up food, fellowship, and fun. Food is a powerful tool to bring people together and to make people feel comfortable.  Through this collaboration, we hope to be able to provide a taste of home for some and new experiences for others. 

On the 1st Wednesday of every month in LBC 203 we will also incorporate discussions around a variety of topics that will engage the campus community.


Monthly Events


This student-lead discussion group provides students with a forum for discussion on one of the most vital and critical issues we face in contemporary society – racial and ethnic prejudice and bigotry. As students prepare to become leaders and new professionals it is important that they learn how to recognize, combat, and address discrimination. It is even more vital that they become aware of their own deeply rooted prejudices that we all carry so that we may all learn how to prevent prejudice from becoming racism or discrimination. The face of America is rapidly changing and thus makes understanding the perspectives on ethnicity, race, socioeconomics, equity, and culture significant to the learning experience of all students.
