Hello Beautiful Community!
We’re almost at the end of our Fall semester! As RRR week and finals approaches we wanted to extend a GINORMOUS thank you to everyone for such a spectacular semester. From town halls to the Big Queer Event, our communities are and have been thriving and growing beautifully.
