OMA in collaboration with other departments, offices, and student organizations work to promote a campus climate where individuals from varying backgrounds interact on a range of levels. We offer a variety of programs that include cultural heritage months and weeks, lectures, film screenings, art and dance showcases, and co-sponsorship of a plethora of campus programs including festivals, trips, conferences, and workshops.
The office offers programs designed to facilitate meaningful dialogues and interaction between students from different cultures and backgrounds. We regularly partner with other campus departments and student organizations to create intercultural programs of interest to the entire Tulane University community
Regular Scheduled Programs occurring throughout the academic year
Wednesdays With the "O"
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. James Lounge, Lavin-Bernick Center for Student Life
Every Wednesday The O offers up food, fellowship, and fun. Food is a powerful tool to bring people together and to make people feel comfortable. Through this collaboration, we hope to be able to provide a taste of home for some and new experiences for others.
Kickbacks With the "O"
Every month, The O opens up after regular hours to hold an informal and relaxed space for students to come and unwind. Typically, we'll have great food, music, a movie, and games. These kickbacks were created to foster a sense of community for students who utilize the O's services and to enjoy each other's company in an informal setting.
Signature Events that are hosted by the "O" each academic year
Fall Multicultural Leadership Retreat
Fall Harvest Fest Potluck
The "O" Pinning Ceremony and Lavender Graduation
