This week in the Office of Student Involvement:

  • The University Program Board (UPB) presents Egg Hunt Aliens on April 12, at 8 p.m. on Oak Hall’s front lawn. Join us for a night of fun, candy, and prizes.
  • On April 13, join PRIZM Queer – Trans – Straight Alliance in bringing awareness to the silencing effects of oppression-based bullying and harassment in schools. Students will take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of oppressive behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on minority students. Participants should visit the PRIZM portal on TritonSync to register. If you have any questions, please contact PRIZM at prizm@umsl.edu or visit us in the Office of Student Involvement.
