On Thursday, Sept. 10, as a part of Maize Days, The Office for Student Engagement allowed students to stop by their office, located in the University Center, to “pop” in for a bag of free popcorn. Students could also find free popcorn on the lower level of the UC in McKinley Cafe.
Dexter Overall, coordinator for Diversity Programs, had a table there as well. The goal was to teach about campus happenings and encourage students to mingle with their classmates.
“We wanted to get students used to hearing from the Office of Student Engagement,” Overall said. “What better way to meet other people and bring students together than with free popcorn and free snacks?”
The event also served as an opportunity for the OSE to promote their next event: a showing of Pitch Perfect 2 from 9-11 pm on the lawn in front of The Union at Dearborn.
“We really wanted to be able to bring people together,” Overall said.
