LEADERSHIP COMMITTEES OS provides students with opportunities for leadership as well. The 2015 peer mentors, Jenna Fiore and Anna Moloney, completed a legacy project creating an extensive infrastructure that enables more students to work within the program. As a result of their thoughtful work, OS now has three committees in addition to peer mentor leadership: event planning, recruitment, and social media. Every fall, students are invited to submit applications for these paid positions in addition to two to three additional positions to serve as student representatives at the OS Leadership Committee meeting and the joint faculty/staff meeting. EVENT COMMITTEE RECRUITMENT COMMITTEE Planned and executed events throughout the year including OS 15th birthday party, Zingerman’s dinner, a Ronald McDonald House volunteer event, Aft ernoon Delight brunch welcoming new OS’ers, and the end of year - Senior Let’s get Disorganized event. Coordinated panelists for fall and winter Info Nights, presented at social sci- ence first-year seminars and in dorms, sent announcements to OS pre-requisite cours- es and to Newnan advising center, and did outreach to targeted organizations (CSP, First Gen, Blavin and Shipman Scholars, MESA). Their biggest highlight was creat- ing a new video of current students shar- ing their experience in the program! SOCIAL MEDIA COMMITTEE Increased OS’s Social Media presence on both Instagram and Facebook through features like #AlumSpotlight, #Staff Spotlight, #ThrowbackThursday, along with up-to-the-minute OS news and events. This year’s lead also created a Snapchat Geofilter for the Ruthven off ices! 8
