Then, Career Development, Office of Academic & Accessibility Resources (OAAR) and IT will have a set place for students to go to discuss any academic needs. Class 2027 Representative and Academic Advocacy Committee Chair Connor Domke reported that Vice President of Academic Affairs Lisa Lambert said they are still trying not to affect the group study rooms on the third floor.
