OYFA!
 Guess what? I'm thankful for you (yes you!) for reading this newsletter. Wherever you're going and with whomever you're spending it, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving or, if anything, a nice break from all the great work you've been doing. And before you know it, you'll be back together with your OYFAm, hopefully 15 lbs heavier with a ridiculously unnecessary amount of new clothes, yes? 

I love you all,
Jerome

Hey OYFAmilia!
 
We hope that everyone has an awesome time at break next week. That being said, before you leave, please stop by for our BARRIO WORKSHOP this Monday at Runk Green Room, 7pm! Don't miss out on the opportunity to act, dance, avoid getting hit by sticks, and more! Looking forward to seeing all of you 💟
 
Also, the opportunity to sign up for modern dances for Barrio has been extended, so keep signing up. The link is on the post pinned on the OYFA FB page ✨

HELLO OYFAAAA 

 
Thank you to all the first years who came to our Fireside Chat, we hope you all had fun and are excited to apply for the scholarship next semester! 
 
Next week is the last week before finals season begins! But don't worry! Scholarship has rooms in Clark booked just for you!
 
Check this spreadsheet for which rooms are available for you all to study in: https://docs.google.com/a/virginia.edu/spreadsheets/d/1trMSgeJ_e2R8vQVc0aoxw658occQ2Q0AVIxfUgvgIpk/edit?usp=sharing 
 
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put your name down if you will be using a room, not just so we can account for space but also to give other people a chance to use the room if no one is currently using it!
 
NOTE: if a room DOES NOT have any names down by the time our reservation starts, we will be cancelling our reservation to allow other people to use the rooms for finals since it's only fair!

What's up OYFA!
 
If ya’ll don’t know, we have set up a Relay for Life team for OYFA! Relay for Life is an amazing event held every year to help fight the battle against cancer and to celebrate those who have survived their battle. We’ll be having fundraisers throughout the year to help donate to the American Cancer Society. Join our team here: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?fr_id=71364&pg=team&team_id=1938102 . Feel free to donate! Every penny donated helps! You also get a super dope gif from us when you sign up!

Hello OYFA!

First of all, thanks to our delegates who attended FIND Dialogue this past weekend.  We had a fantastic time traveling, meeting new people, and talking about our hertitage.  Also, huge props to our drivers Alex Zarzuela and Cory Einsmann for making the trip up to UCONN possible.


Congrats to the Kalinga family for bringing the most OYFA Thrift Store donations to Potluck!  Thrift Store will be held December 2rd. 11.30-3.30PM in the Newcomb Kaleidoscope Room.  We are still collecting donations, and it would be awesome if you raided your closets for donations over Thanksgiving!

Much Mahal!
