OMSA offers many programs designed to connect the student of color community and help them form meaningful friendships, share experiences, and collaborate. In addition to bringing students into contact with each other, we serve as a catalyst for interactions among students, alumni, and faculty. Below is a list of our community building programs. Please visit the calendar of events for more information.
OMSA offers Orientation Programs for both first year undergraduate students and graduate and professional students to support their transition to the University of Chicago. These programs include panels featuring current students of color and receptions that allow students to meet and mingle.
The Graduation Celebration is an annual event to congratulate all graduating students of color from the university.
OMSA Study Breaks offer students a chance to come together to catch up with each other, relax and de-stress before finals.
