Beloit Student Congress kicked off the final quarter of the 2011-12 school year with a brief meeting last Monday, March 12.
A student forum led by Danica Slavish’12 focused on the Campus and Community Outreach Center (CCOC) and the opportunities it can provide to clubs. The CCOC is an on-campus service located in the Liberal Arts and Practice Center (LAPC) that provides students with a variety of volunteer opportunities, as well as assisting clubs in finding volunteers for events.
A primary focus of the CCOC is tutoring, both by and for Beloit students. Other recent events that the CCOC has recruited students for include the homeless count last January, “The Empty Bowl” project at Caritas and the previous blood drives on campus. Any questions about upcoming events or involvement can be directed via email to Slavish at firstname.lastname@example.org or the CCOC office.
There was no business to be discussed, causing the meeting to end within 15 minutes of the start. The next meeting will take place tonight (Monday, March 19).
