College Guide

A new web resource for current and future LGBTQ college students has come to our attention. It is a guide to show LGBTQ students the various on-campus and online resources they can use to help make college a more welcoming and supportive experience. The guide also includes interviews with a pair of diversity experts who lead student inclusion efforts on campuses today. This might be useful for those of you considering grad school.

Special thanks to Doug Jones for bringing this resource to RPI.

Picnic Table

Interested in getting involved on campus and spreading your organization’s name throughout RPI? The Student Senate Facilities and Services Committee has been working on a project to bring more picnic tables to our campus! Thanks to joint funding through the RPI Administration and the Rensselaer Union Executive Board, we’ve acquired 15 new picnic tables ready to be assembled.

The Senate has decided to partner with student organizations to build these tables. Groups that participate will have their names engraved on a permanent plaque to be placed with the table in its final location on campus! This means that you and your club have the opportunity to assemble one of these tables, free of charge, and leave a permanent mark on campus.

The picnic tables will be at the ‘86 Field on May 13th, from 10 AM to 5 PM. Sign up, then stop by anytime on that date to build your table and make our campus a nicer place! Please contact me at hanm3@rpi.edu if you have any questions!

Thanks,
Michael Han

The Pride Alliance will be building a table and can use all of your help!

Damien Center

Quote

Hello,

I work at the Albany Damien Center and have begun a program designed for addressing HIV/STI in people of color. We keep the groups open, but this is our main area for target interventions. We have recently rented out the apartment space above Rocks Bar on Central Ave. We are turning it in to our office space and community drop in center.

I would love to touch base with you can discuss our program more in depth and see if there is any opportunity for us to collaborate on projects. I hope this finds you well. Tale good care.
