Take a look at the electronic billboards on the spiral staircase that connects three of NC State’s campus community centers in Talley Student Union. Three students who are active in the centers are currently featured.
Lauren is a volunteer at the Women’s Center.
“I love the work that the Women’s Center does and the people I meet through the Women’s Center’s programs. It’s my favorite place to go between classes. The workshops we do on healthy relationships or bystander behaviors and the mentoring services we provide to young students in Wake County complement my academic work in women’s and gender studies. I’m so thankful to have found my niche on campus.”
