I want to first thank the panel, for they were the ones taking time out of their day to educate the students, who I would also like to thank. Without student interest, this event would not have been possible. Your drive to learn more about our community and the governing bodies involved which keep us safe is an important part of building a positive environment for everyone.
Finally, I want to thank the organizations who play even a minor role in making this a successful event. The Political Science and Public Justice clubs, Student Association, The Oswegonian, WTOP, the Public Justice, Political Science, and Communication departments, The Compass, Phi Sigma Sigma, Students For Global Change, The Office of Business and Community Relations, The Public Relations Office, The Point and Student Involvement, and WRVO.
The event was everything we planned and more. We were happy to see students asking important questions during the event, voicing concerns. But, the best part was watching students interact with the panel members after the event was over.
For pictures from last night check back here or on our Facebook page (facebook.com/sunyoswegocivicengagement) in the next couple of days. We hope to keep the ball rolling with more events and collaborative efforts to educate everyone in the near future, so stay tuned!
