Welcome Back for Spring Semester

Welcome back, Bobcats!

We here at the Women’s Center know that the weather outside is bound to change from one minute to the next (are you wearing layers? You should be). We also know that the temperature inside the Women’s Center is usually just about perfect. So, whether it is so cold that you can’t feel your toes or so hot that you are struggling to find AC, come to Baker 403 and spend some time enjoying our awesome events this semester.

Here are some events to look out for:
