The Staff of the OSS (Office of Student Services), the SAC, and the Res Hall would like to thank the entire NEC Community for making NEC: It Gets EVEN Better! such a successful event! The week of April 7th was an uplifting celebration of our LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Ally) community and of NEC as a place where personal expression is encouraged and embraced.
We sold over 150 ribbons and raised $300 to support The Trevor Project which provides services for LGBTQ youth including anti-bullying, suicide prevention, and crisis intervention. Many thanks to our generous students, faculty and staff who contributed to this fundraiser.
With overwhelming participation from our staff, faculty and students (including a cameo appearance from Beethoven!), we have created a series of “Selfie Videos” showcasing messages of love, support and community. You can view all the versions below!
