History of the OC committee:
The founder Vincent Gamuzza began this novel idea of uniting the newcomers of IAUPR in 2010. It originally began as a group that only worked during the summer to help students transition to the school but grew to large committee that works continuously throughout the year. Now the OC serves alumni, current students and its incoming students. The motivation was to help the college of optometry smooth the transition for incoming students and better prepare them for the new life that awaited them upon arriving to the tropical island.
Our goal is to help students prepare for their new life and make it a smooth transitioning process. We work each week by giving tours and answering questions for the new students as well as calling alumni and keeping their records up-to-date. We work individually with incoming first year students throughout the summer and guide them. Being on the committee is a rewarding and gratifying experience and each member shows great dedication and commitment to the OC and those we serve. Community service is our number one objective and helping the community function together as a whole is our priority.
