Appreciation week is latest event for off-campus students

The first Off-Campus Appreciation Week kicks off Monday, just in time for students returning from spring break.

Sponsored by the Off-Campus Student Programs and Services Office, the event is geared toward students who live off-campus, but on-campus residents are also invited to check out the activities.

“This is a new initiative to get off-campus students more involved on campus,” said Mhevish Khan, graduate advisor for the office.

Khan said she has two Mason undergraduate students working with her on the event, Gleason Rowe & Dana Fayyad.

The office previously hosted a study lounge for off-campus students in December, and it was such a huge success that another one is being planned for the spring she said. Khan and her team are also brainstorming more fun activities for off-campus students.

“We have a movie night in the works. We plan to reserve one of the lots on campus and setup an old-fashioned drive-in, complete with concessions stand,” said Khan.

A detailed line-up of events taking place during the appreciation week can be found on the Off-Campus Student Programs and Services website.
