Good evening, I am excited to announce that I will have the privilege of serving the OCU community this coming academic year as the President of OCU-SGA. I would love to congratulate David Hall on a fantastic campaign that was very focused on the Student body. People like him know what it means to serve and I am thankful for the opportunity I’ve had with him to reach out to students this past week which gave us both a new understanding of where OCU is currently, where it is heading, and what we can do to make it the best OCU possible”
