Over the past month I have been working on checking off the curriculum item: “Implement a new/improved initiative on campus or in the community” under the innovation domain by re-developing the student organization BOC (Brock Off-Campus).
Throughout my time here at Brock I have heard many students vocalize that there is a gap when it comes to the opportunities available that help off-campus students get involved and make connections. This is why I have received support from the Student Life & Community Experience team to re-implement BOC, a pre-existing student organization that aimed to foster a community of involved off-campus students.
Looking forward, the aim of BOC will be to facilitate opportunities for off-campus students to create connections with one another as well as to facilitate these students’ involvement on and off-campus. This will be accomplished by hosting a variety of events throughout the year as well as running a number of online and in-person workshops related to living off-campus such as grocery shopping, cooking, doing laundry etc. To learn more about BOC I encourage you to check out our organization page on ExperienceBU and Facebook!
To hear about what’s in store for me on this journey to completing the CWC, look out for my next blog post coming soon!
Keep experiencing BU & beyond!
If you or any other student you know is living off-campus, be sure to connect with others that are in the same boat as you! Join the Brock Off-Campus club by connecting with us on ExperienceBU or Facebook.
