🎉 Congratulations on wrapping up Fall 2021! 🎉
Our first semester back in person is coming to a close now and we would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who stopped by one of our programs, visited our office, attended a queer discussion group, or followed us on social media. After months of isolation it was a relief to be surrounded by so many old and new friends, laughter, creativity, great music, and silliness. We're excited to see you all next year for new memories!
