The OHIO Alumni Association will be hosting a Senior Week Open House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday in the fifth-floor atrium of Baker University Center. Seniors can stop by for information on the Alumni Association and how to get involved in its  chapters and societies, to decorate their graduation caps, to participate in the Senior T-shirt Trade-in (bring an old OHIO T-shirt to exchange for a new OHIO alumni T-shirt), and more. Seniors who bring a canned food item to donate to the Cats’ Cupboard will receive a free meal ticket for an OHIO dining hall.

OHIO’s  Career and Leadership Development Center  will be hosting drop-in hours from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday on the fifth floor of Baker University Center, offering seniors the last chance as students to refine their resumes and talk about career planning with the center’s staff.
