Junior February Schneck and Senior Senior Cecil Decker write about the importance of inclusive, welcoming LGBTQ+ resources on campus.

Commentary: LGBTQ+ resources must be welcoming to people of all identities

By February Schneck and Cecil Decker March 19, 2024

Many of the college's organizations and clubs make great efforts to make our queer students feel welcomed in their dedicated spaces.
