Hope everyone's well! All of our officers have graduated or are otherwise unable to lead Spectrum this year. Is there anyone who wants to step up and keep things going this year? I'm assuming that would mostly mean hosting virtual hangouts a few times a semester and possibly attending a few Student Life online leadership trainings. Let me know if you are interested.

They are taking applications from students who are on campus this Fall...so we can't do it at OCC, but I thought there may be some people who transferred somewhere who might be interested?

Women Have Options - Ohio

Happy #NationalComingOutDay to all of us full of #PRIDE, but especially to those of us still in the closet because we don’t feel safe or enough to. You are loved, you are seen, you’re not alone.

The research department of OCC is wanting student feedback. They specifically asked for Spectrum, so this is a fabulous opportunity for you to have your voices heard. It would be very meaningful if you made complaints or offered suggestions on how they could be more inclusive to the LGBTQ community. If you want ideas about how other colleges are inclusive (and how OCC can do better) check out campusprideindex.org I believe they are offering a bookstore gift card for those who participate, too. If you want to participate, please send your student e-mail address with a note telling me you are from Spectrum to [email protected] Thanks so much!
