Meeting Tomorrow


This week’s meeting will be held Wednesday at 7:30 PM in 010 Behrakis Health Sciences Center. This is not our usual meeting location in Richards Hall. Yes, that’s right, not the normal place, but 010 Behrakis instead. Come hear about upcoming trips and get details for NUComers this weekend!

Bad nature joke of the week: Why did Summer miss this week’s NUHOC meeting?
Because without thinking, she winter Richards Hall autumn-atically! (Don’t blame her, we did spring a room change out of nowhere…)

NUComers Wait List Information

Hi everyone, if you weren’t able to get a ticket to NUComers, Gianna Scioletti is coordinating the wait list. You should email her at the address below if you would like to be put on the wait list for available tickets, or if you would like to sell the ticket you purchased. Names will be put on the wait list in the order that requests are received.

If you do purchase a ticket and can no longer attend, please do not sell your ticket to your friends, but rather sell it through NUHOC (by emailing Gianna, your VP Publicity). Please follow this guideline, because otherwise we will not have the buyer’s contact information and will not be able to provide transportation to NUComers for that person.

Please email Gianna and do not Facebook message her or contact her by other means, that way she can add names to the list in fair order. She generally accidentally neglectx the “Other” folder in FB messaging anyway.


Emails should contain your name (first then last), NUid number, and phone number. Thanks.
