Friday the 21st, 3:00 pm: Day of Silence: On a nationwide scale, this is the Day of Silence, an event of solidarity with those who have experienced the effects of anti LGBTQ harassment and bullying. Many choose to take a vow of silence on this day, but instead, to mark the occasion, we invite you to pick up and wear a t shirt that we will be handing out by the Oreo. You can also get yours from 202 Dougherty. This afternoon, participants will gather by the ellipse to commemorate the day at 3:00pm to Break The Silence (following the 175th anniversary Alma Mater Sing Along).

Friday the 21st through Wednesday the 26th, 11:30 am to 1:30 pm: Tabling at the Oreo: To make our presence known on campus while also having fun with the fam, we will have a table at the Oreo on Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ll be handing out cool free swag, such as the fantastic t-shirt that you helped to vote for. Are you able to help out? Sign up here:
