Meet Off-Campus Ambassadors

Off-Campus Life is excited to introduce the new Off-Campus Ambassadors (OCA).  OCAs are undergraduate student staff members who provide community building and more localized attention ("eyes and ears") to the issues and individuals in these Off-Campus communities. OCA's will plan, market, coordinate as well as facilitate events and programs focused on neighborhood relations, Evanston Landlord/Tenant Law, living/learning skills and approved social events for Off-Campus students. OCA's will help Off-Campus students stay connected with the NU Campus through programs, educational resources and events.
