The new Director of DSA’s Office of Student Conflict Resolution (OSCR) got interested in conflict during his undergraduate years. "I was talking to a fraternity brother who was pretty upset about someone he assumed was flirting with his ex-girlfriend. This big, macho guy stormed out of the room angrily and said 'I'm going to go talk to that guy' and within ten minutes the whole thing was resolved; I was amazed!" At that moment Jay realized he had been wasting unnecessary emotional energy by avoiding difficult conversations.
"Get involved, and get involved early! Attend as many campus events as you can, or else you will miss so many things that are unique to Michigan."
