I’m not sure if I should be concerned about how easily motivated I am by food and free t-shirts.. But I think it’s a good starting point to getting more involved with the community of my chosen field of study.
I was out last week letting people know about Centre for Community Partnerships. Outreach isn’t as easy as it looks, even when there’s free delicious cupcakes involved… Got any creative ideas to do outreaching? Send them my way 🙂

As volunteers, the MoveU Crew supports and leads events. They interact with students, make them feel comfortable and get them involved at events.
