Today was my second day here at the OCEP. From beginning to end it was filled with action-packed activities. As I had recently spoken about before, I continued to work on the ALICE event. OCEP is still in the early stages of planning this event; however, we are ready and excited to get the ball rolling.
I also attended a “Match-Up” in which OCEP hosts. The purpose of this event is to link USF and community partners whom network and learn about how community engagement and service-learning and how it can benefit his or her organization. Today I was able to network with local community members and USF faculty. It truly was an amazing experience! It was great to see how OCEP engages with the community and creates networking opportunities for community members that in turn make a positive impact in our community. I also had the opportunity to take lots and lots of pictures at the event on behalf of OCEP. So, be on the look-out for my fancy photography taking skills! 🙂
All in all, today was another great day at OCEP! Stay tuned for more updates next week!
Take it easy, USF!
