The Academic Center is now open! The Unified Student Government (USG) has refurnished the new study space in room 13! We couldn't have done it without your contributions to the Sensei Walk fundraiser ($1500!). The Academic Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The center comes with some rules: No food, no video games, use headphones, and be respectful of the room as well as others around you. We hope everyone will enjoy the new quiet space, and we're so glad to have had the opportunity to provide it!
Every June, millions of Americans gather to celebrate LGBT Pride month. Early on June 28, 1969, police raided a gay bar in Manhattan called the Stonewall Inn. This led to a series of demonstrations by members of the LGBT community. These riots are considered to be the event that lead to the gay liberation movement and the beginning of the fight for LGBT rights in the United States. One year later, on the first anniversary of these riots, the first LGBT pride parades were held. Since then, the LGBT community in the United States has gathered together to celebrate their identities every year in June. This year, on June 3, 2018, the Neumont Spectrum club walked in Salt Lake City’s 43rd annual pride parade amidst an estimated 100,000 attendants.
