Magandang Gabi OYFA!


Hoo Am I? will be held on Wednesday September 30th, from 7-8.30pm. It is a panel for A/APA members of our community to speak about their experiences on Grounds with regards to racism/micro-aggression, under-representation of A/APA community, and self-segregation of A/APA community from the rest of the university community.


Check your houses over Fall Break for any gently used clothes, bags, shoes and accessories and donate them to the OYFA Thrift Store! Proceeds will go towards FIND D7. If you have any donations, email or facebook message Jean (jms2wz) or Patricia (pgg3zg).

Let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns!

Much Mahal,
