A Way with Words

Award-winning spoken word artist, Kyla Lacey, will be coming to Eastern’s campus on Monday, February 2, 2015. At 1pm in the Student Center Café, she will fuse comedy and poetry together while tackling the issues of being a woman in today’s society. She’ll make you laugh, cry, and feel inspired. It is not to be missed! At 3pm, she will host a writing workshop in Student Center Room 221 where you can unleash your creativity and give voice to your own personal experiences. We hope you will join us!

Welcome Back

The Spring 2015 semester just kicked off this week and we’re happy to see everyone back! We’re also excited to share the new Cultural Celebrations Calendar. There are plenty of events on it that discuss a variety of topics, thanks to the collaboration between the Women’s Center, Intercultural Center, Pride Room, CAB, and other departments. We will be blogging about the events in more detail as they get closer. We also plan to have post-event reflections written by our Student Ambassadors, discussing the events in case you missed them. For now, we want to highlight the upcoming events put on by the Women’s Center:

  • A Way with Words
  • The Spirit of Isabella Beecher Hooker
  • HIV: A Life Sentence
  • Ella T. Grasso Distinguished Service Awards
  • A Talk with Duane de Four
  • Save Wiyabi Project
  • Take Back the Night

There will be even more events throughout the semester, that weren’t able to make it onto the Cultural Celebrations Calendar. So stay tuned!
