Happy April! As we approach the end of the Spring semester, we know that as student leaders, you'll be wrapping up with your organizations and shifting focus to finish the semester academically strong. With that, here are a few updates and reminders from Student Activities and Organizations (SAO).

Now is the time to focus on officer transitions for your student organizations leadership team! We are offering this workshop three times in the month of April to accommodate schedules. We invite outgoing officers to attend as well as incoming officers to assist with your organization transitions. Please make every effort to attend at least one workshop.

If these dates do not work for your schedule please contact the SAO office at to set up an individual appointment.
