Events to celebrate excellent NIU students

cswgs-logoNIU’s Center for the Study of Women, Gender & Sexuality will host two events Friday, May 6, to celebrate the excellence of NIU students.

The 2016 CSWGS Student Symposium will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Regency Room of the Holmes Student Center’s Regency Room.

The symposium includes student papers that explore a wide variety of issues related to women’s, gender and sexuality studies, including eco-feminism; immigrant women’s experiences in higher education; the ways that lesbian, gay and bisexual people define their sexuality; women’s self-promotion; and more.

After the symposium, come celebrate the accomplishments and recognize the contributions of Center for the Study of Women, Gender & Sexuality students, faculty and partners at the CSWGS Honors Day Reception.

Graduation cords will be handed out to all undergraduate WGST and LGBT Studies students who are graduating in May or August. Refreshments will be served. The reception begins at 4:30 p.m. in the Regency Room.

Both events are free and open to all.
