Spring 2019 Final General Body Meeting

The Final General Body Meeting will take place Sunday, March 31 @ 7:30pm in the Senate Chamber of the Ohio Union. We are fortunate enough to have guest speaker Angela Rucci, a computer science engineering senior, come speak about a revolutionary app she has been developing.


As we are nearing the end of the academic year, we will also be holding elections for the next round of ECOS officers! All positions (whether running or re-running) will require a 2-3 minute speech expressing qualifications and new ideas for the position. We will also be recognizing newly appointed project leaders and showcasing the progress made by each project team this semester.

Available Positions:

President, VP of External Affairs, VP of Internal Affairs, Treasurer, Social Chair (X2), Webmaster (X2), E-Council Representative (X2)
