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.

Trevor Project

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.

Selfie Project

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!

NEC: It Gets EVEN Better Movie

STAY TUNED FOR THE PREVIEW OF OUR VIDEO!

Sometime in the early Fall we will premier the NEC: It Gets EVEN Better video, created from selfies submitted and footage shot during this week!
