What's Happening with the OSC?


Thanks go to the Holmes Student Center cooks and serving staff. Thanks also go to the NIU Employees Federal Credit Union for the placemats, A Balloon Creation for the balloon decorations, and all of the local businesses for the door prizes.

Thank you operating staff for all of your hard work; you are appreciated! We are happy that so many of you were able to attend, and we appreciate what you gave to the Huskies Student Food Pantry, and to the 50/50 Raffle whose proceeds go to the Operating Staff Dependent Scholarship. The winner of this year's raffle was Logan Halstead. Congratulations Logan! Thank you one and all for helping make StaffFest 2015 so successful!
