OPIRG McMaster has a small office in MUSC 229. It is simultaneously a workspace for staff, a resource library, a storage area, and a small meeting space. It’s a challenge to balance the various uses sometimes, but we can do it all most days. It helps that we have volunteers sorting and scanning old paper files so we can free up space in drawers, and with a few more changes we might even be able to reinvent the space to reflect the changing dynamic of a modern and engaged office supporting student volunteers. That’s the hope anyway. Some scenes from a Thursday de-cluttering follow:
