California State University, Dominguez Hills Preview Day 2013

I had the distinguished honor of representing the Sociology Department at Cal Sate University, Dominguez Hills at Preview Day 2013. I organized tabling with two Sociology students from the department, and then planned, coordinated and facilitated a Student Forum for Sociology Majors, where current Sociology students were able to talk to and with in-coming students for Fall 2013.
