Student Majlis will be hosting its first ever Town Hall this week! For those of you who are not familiar with what a Town Hall is, the purpose is to update the community on the progress made by the Student Majlis as well as give the community a platform to ask us the "tough" questions! At the meeting no faculty/staff will be present so you are welcome to provide feedback on any issues that concern you.

So we'll be expecting all of you then! :-)

Every time you see this cover on our page, it means that we have an upcoming campus conversation! This week the topic is "Is it CMU-Q's job to get you a job?" #StayTuned #CforCareer

Join us for our FIRST campus conversation this semester! An issue which has been troubling our campus for quite sometime. So be there and make your voice heard! #ThisThursdayMajlis #CforCareer
