Connecting with OSA Virtually
We understand that for many of you, moving to virtual instruction will change the way that you interact with our office. To ensure that you are still supported while completing your coursework remotely, you are welcome to make an appointment with any member of the OSA staff via the following links:
Upon scheduling a meeting through Calendly, the OSA staff member that you are meeting with will send you an invite for a Zoom meeting to take place at that time. If you would prefer to meet over the phone, please indicate that when booking the appointment.
Be sure to keep up-to-date with everything that is happening at HGSE by checking the HUB.
Virtual Gutman Library Lobby
Do you miss randomly running into classmates, colleagues, and friends in the lobby of Gutman Library? Miss the impromptu connections that are made strictly by chance?
Stop by the Virtual Gutman Lobby, open 24/7. The unmoderated, open Google Hangout space (Google account required for entry) allows you to "pop-in" to the "Gutman Lobby" to see who else is hanging out looking to make connections.
