Golden Gate University has an inclusive community that truly appreciates diversity. In order to support our students and staff who were and might be affected by the recent changes in U.S. immigration policy, our Office of Student Affairs will be hosting a conversation with an immigration lawyer on February 10, from 3:30 to 4:30 PM.
This time of political uncertainty can be frustrating, but we want you to know that you’re not alone! We highly suggest our students to use the resources available on campus to seek guidance whenever they feel the need, and invite them to Friday’s conversation as we believe it will be highly valuable.
News & Updates
If you missed last week’s #SocialWednesday, you might have missed the announcement of our new activity. Since the first day we first launched our blog, we promised to live by our motto “by students, for students,” and with our brand new activity, Featured Student Blogs, we invite all of our students to submit their blog posts to have them featured on GGU Social!
GGU Social has been providing Golden Gate University students with entertainment, news, and campus updates on a weekly basis, with a total unique reader count of almost 3,000 over the past year! To give back to our readers, we decided to give you a chance to showcase your writing skills by having your blog featured on our website to gain more exposure and expand your network!
