September 16, 2016This article was written by Rebecca Caladiao
Students are in for some rousing events to come, courtesy of the Otter Student Union (OSU) and their mission to cultivating a community on campus. Aaisha Ahad, Programming officer, is anticipating a great turnout at the Black Box Cabaret for the Finding Dory movie night on Thursday, September 15. “We expect so many students to come that we decided to have two showings; one at 7:00 and another at 9:00.” says Ahad.
Already this semester, officers have held 4 events including their annual Late Night @ the Student Center, a Root Beer Float Giveaway, and Dance, Dance, Dance w/DJ Carisma. Senior and BBC Representative D’Quan Stewart says of the OSU, “I have gotten opportunities to make connections with other organizations as well as meet some cool people in the process.”
Our student representatives, including Aaisha and D’Quan, encourage the embrace of school spirit in our young academic lives while achieving our career goals. All of the affiliates of the OSU work to unite students across all majors through respect, diversity, and promoting campus life.
This is D’Quan and Aaisha’s first semester with the OSU, and as excited as Ahad is to give out prizes for the Finding Nemo trivia preceding Finding Dory, she is most excited about booking Kel Mitchell (All That!, Good Burger, and Kenan & Kel) for his interactive stand-up show on Thursday, September 22. This free event will be held in the UC Ballroom, the same location as the October’s Homecoming concert featuring We the Kings. Tickets for homecoming are on sale starting Friday, September 16.
