The Center's annual LGBTQIA+ Community Welcome is a must-attend event for students looking to build community this year! The event includes games, crafts, and activities to help you meet and engage with new and current students, including LGBTQIA+ student leaders at ISU. Staff and faculty are also welcome! It's a great opportunity to get connected to new folks, meet The Center's staff, learn about LGBTQIA+ events and organizations on campus, and kickoff the 2021 academic year. 


This year's LGBTQIA+ Community Welcome will be held on Tuesday, August 31st from 6-8pm in the Memorial Union Great Hall.
