Thank you to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules amidst midterm season to come to SGUO's 2019 Fall Social! During the event, students were able to get to know more about each other by swapping Bruincards, playing bingo, and bonding with one another over refreshments. We hope everyone who came out had fun and was able to meet other students with similar majors and interests!

     The SGUO Board wants to welcome all new members to a new and exciting year! With our new logo comes new ideas and initiatives for this academic year that we hope will take this organization to the next level. The predominant goal SGUO wishes to achieve this year is to provide a "private school" feel within the #1 Public University in the United States!
