In your own words, what is OCASA?
OCASA is basically the facilitator for your needs. If you live in an off Campus Apartment and you have an issue, but you don’t know where to go, your first step would be OCASA. We are your voice. Instead of handling something on your own, we can handle it for you in more formalized manor.
