This Month in OMSA
We are Moving.
This summer, renovations began in Wyllie Hall. During this time, OMSA will be located on the first floor of the Library.

Please stop by to see our new space this fall.
Register for SOCA 490 - Special Topics in Sociology: Native Activism

We Are Still Here.
Ready to Listen and Actively Advocating for Change.
As many of you are taking a break this summer, do not forget OMSA continues to be a support system for you.

In addition to the stressors that COVID-19 presents, many are overwhelmed by the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others, as well as the influx of opinions surfacing on social media.

Please reach out to any of the staff members if you need a safe space to share your thoughts and feelings or want advice on how to create change during these challenging times.
Meet the OMSA Staff!
