Wednesdays @ 6 p.m.

Wednesdays @ 6pm is a weekly program run by the Center for Student Support which offers students a wide variety of ways to connect with their own identities, with community, and with pertinent social issues through interactive workshops, peer-facilitated conversations, lectures, and panel discussion. Each Wednesdays @ 6pm program highlights a piece of Student Support's work and is convened by one of the branches of the Department of Student Support: Intercultural Engagement, Sexual Violence Prevention, and Health & Wellness. We feature a number of student-led series:

  • Speak Out Loud is a student-led, educational, and engaging dialogue on various topics tied to identity and social justice issues.
  • Tan Lines features mouthy, millenial women of color sipping, serving, and spilling the tea. This event will be talk-show style with panelists engaging with one another on a topic/theme, and intermittently, with the audience for Q&A and continued conversation.

Wednesdays @ 6pm are usually located in the Social Justice Center at 3224 N. 13th Street. Occasionally, they take place in the Rotunda or Trimble Forum.
