The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life opened a resource center on Aug.17, and it’s available to all Georgia College students.
Students can use the resource center as a common space to meet with a group or organization. Tiffany Bane and Stacey Milner, the assistant directors of Fraternity and Sorority Life, are there to discuss any questions students may have about conducting their own meetings. Other resources include printing, computers, a sheet sign station and an area to study.
“This past Thursday, my printer at home ran out of ink 30 minutes before class was starting, but then I remembered the new OFSL offers free printing for students,” said Panhellenic President Razi Shadmehry. “I was able to print my assignment I needed for class with plenty of time, and it was wonderful knowing I had that resource available to me.”
OFSL wanted to use their space in the most efficient way possible, so they drafted a plan and proposed it to the Student Government Association. SGA completely funded the renovations of the resource center.
There is also a break room with a Keurig and a refrigerator. Students can store their lunches there and use the resource center to do homework during their breaks.
“You walk in here having no idea who is going to be in here today and you start having a conversation,” Bane said. “Suddenly projects are being created, relationships are being created, friendships are being created. That’s one of the things we are most excited about – people being here.”
The OFSL resource center is open Monday–Thursday from 10 a.m.–9 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. During midterms and finals, their hours will follow the library hours.
