What Do YOU Want Wednesday – February 10th

This month, we worked with Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) to hold a mental health-themed WDYWW and we asked students how they felt about mental health services on campus. If you weren’t able to stop by our table in the Johnson Center on Wednesday, feel free to complete our survey, here:

Recent Legislation: Resolution 14

Last week, the Senate passed Resolution #14: A Resolution to Support Priority Registration for Contracted ROTC Cadets at George Mason University.
