New Video Inbound!

Golden Gate University’s Office of Student Affairs just released their brand new mini-documentary on YouTube! We are extremely excited to finally be able to share this with you, not only because it’s awesome, but also because the video was produced by our editor and publisher, Tarik Asan.

We believe that the video did a great job at capturing the sensation of the student life at Golden Gate University. If you would like to learn what the Office of Student Affairs does to full extent and meet the faces that are always here for you, make sure to watch the 4.5 minute mini-documentary above!

In last week’s #SocialWednesday, we talked about the Magazine of Golden Gate University and mentioned their “Best of Neighborhood” survey that they are using to learn what your favorite spots in the neighborhood are for their article. We invite our readers to participate in their survey and contribute to the community in picking the best spots in the neighborhood!
