Facebook Chat – OUSA

Sandra Carter, Student Community Assistant at OUSA has sent the following message:

‘With Freshers fast approaching at the end of the month, we were wondering how the Societies would like to get involved.

‘Cath Brown will be hosting a Facebook chat 7-8 pm on 27th September. This will be an opportunity for new students to pose questions about Societies. It would also be a great chance to entice new members. For those of you who haven’t attended one of these ‘online events’ here’s a link to this January’s equivalent chat. https://www.facebook.com/events/618023334991215/?active_tab=posts

‘When the day comes you’ll be able to find the event on this page https://www.facebook.com/OUstudents/events

Hope to see some OU Poets joining in the conversation.
