Campus Chapter Mid-Semester Updates

University of Missouri Columbia:

This past week was an interesting week for us at ASUM Mizzou! Our leadership held a board meeting last week April 14th, released the '21-'22 ASUM Mizzou Executive Board applications (due April 27th), and held a chapter meeting to discuss the MU Justice Center decision. At that meeting, we also had one of our Legislative Interns, Laith Almashharawi, speak about his experience in the 2021 ASUM Legislative Program and the issues that ASUM advocates for. Finally, we have a Greek affiliated PAC coming to present about their organization on May 3rd at 7:30 pm on zoom! We hope to see you there! Mizzou updates are written by MU ASUM Chapter Vice-President, Brendan Spicer.
