ISSS and C-Hope are looking for new or gently used shoes!
All shoes will be donated to Missions in Motion. During Spring Break there will be an opportunity to volunteer and help with the transport and sorting of the shoes. 

Drop off your new or gently used shoes in the collection box in the MacMillan Hall Lobby from Wednesday, February 26 to March 26.  

Immigration tip
Take advantage of ISSS walk-in hours!

SSS offers walk-in advising hours every Monday through Thursday from 3:00-4:30pm - no appointment needed! 
If you have a relatively brief or urgent question, this is a great time to get it answered.
There are few specific topics that require a scheduled appointment (government applications such as OPT, university withdrawal, and academic probation discussions). Most other topics can be discussed during walk-in hours, unless your situation is complex or you have a lot of questions. 

For walk-in advising hours, just come to the Global Initiatives front desk in MacMillan Hall (second floor, to the right) any time between 3-4:30pm on a Monday-Thursday.
