Students promote ‘respect’

RALEIGH — The GLBT Center at North Carolina State University (NCSU) is gearing up for a host of events as part of welcoming the fall semester.

They are joining together with the student government and other departments on campus to initiate “Respect the Pack,” which will help promote unity, traditions and stand against hate to support NCSU’s values. They will paint the Free Expression Tunnel on Aug. 16, 8-11 p.m.

Earlier that day, they will host an open house from 3-5 p.m. at 360 Harrelson Hall. On Aug. 17 from 7-9 p.m., stop by for camaraderie, fun and refreshments. Bop on down to the Talley Student Center on Aug. 20 for the IRC Silent Disco from 10 p.m.-2 a.m.

Still can’t get enough? Then attend the GLBT-CA meeting on Aug. 23, 7 p.m. to learn more about what the center has to offer. Stay for board games.

Cap off the fun with a rave party on Aug. 26 in the Walnut Room in the Talley Student Center from 7-10 p.m. Admission is free.

The center is also looking for interested people to run for office or to help with a number of other functions to help sustain its work.
