Board Announcements

Vice President


On November 8th at 10AM, OYFA will be holding its interim elections where we elect interim board and council positions that were installed after our regular election period. Please join us for this event as we need half of our constituents (paid members) to begin the elections.

In addition to the interim positions we are already electing, we also have two occupancies that are open. The position of (1) Community Chair and (2) D7 Representative are currently open for anyone to run for. All are welcome to run for these positions, no experience is required, and first years are welcome to run as well.

If you are interested in either the position of Community Chair or D7 Representative or have questions about the interim procedure, please contact me (Elexa Rallos) at

Thanks guys, I hope you will consider attending interim elections or running for the two positions I listed above. Have a great week!

Thank you so much to everyone who helped Culture over the past month of practices, stress, and craziness! OYFA's performance was successful because of all of you (General Membs, Babies, Dancers, Board, Council, Over, Past Cultures) and just we appreciate you all so much! Culturefest season is now over! However, please look forward to our next big event ~Barrio :3 If you feel like reminiscing, please watch the video below. Who knows how many times I've already seen it 🔥
