This academic year has been the launch year of their newest facility, the Fresh Basic Needs Hub. As an expansion from the SOAR food pantry, the Fresh Basic Needs Hub provides food relief and security to those who need it. Come join your PAA, Fernando, for a tour of their location and see all they have to offer! The Hub has studying and eating spaces, chef resource hours, emergency supplies for students, and much more. The tour will take place on Tuesday Nov. 14 at 3pm. The group will meet in the Locus at 2:45pm to walk over to the location. If you are interested, come into the CHP office to secure your spot.

Honors Chemistry Study Groups

November 6, 2017

Honors Chemistry Study Groups is a program held by the Academic Chairs of CHSC in which CHP Students in Honors Chemistry can get together in organized study groups with peers and peer leaders who have done well in the course. The peer leaders will be answering any questions about concepts that you’re going over in Honors Chem and helping to facilitate study groups for studying or tackling Tuffys.

The program is planned to start during Week 6 on either Wednesday or Thursday for a one hour session. 

Please fill out this Doodle with your availability so that we can best see which date is best for you. The program would be at an Honors Study Room in the library, the Locus, or an Honors Hall depending on size of the groups (TBA until Doodle is filled). Feel free to bring along friends.

There will also be opportunities to tour Camino, Puerta Del Sol, Vista Del Campo, and VDC Norte.  The tour will be on Wednesday, November 8th from 6:15-7:45pm.  Please meet the PAAs at the Locus 10 minutes before the tour starts. The 2018-2019 housing application opens on November 17th, so by attending our tour you will be familiarized with the on-campus communities!
