This come-and-go program is designed to welcome students to UCO and give them an opportunity to learn more about AAFSA while gaining insight on how to be a successful student.

This is also an opportunity for AAFSA members to fellowship and learn more about the African American Faculty/Staff Association and our upcoming programs. Please come out for good food, good music, and good fun!
