STUDENT ACTIVISM IN ACTION

The Black Student Leadership Association came together last week to paint a Black Lives Matter mural on the Admin Building. (Check it out if you haven’t had a chance.) They were assisted by students from the Queer Alliance and Empowering Females on Campus (EFOC). (EFOC also has some creative posters around campus that call attention to societal perceptions of women. Check them out, too!) Read more here
