Volunteers Needed

CCA's Queer/Straight Alliance (QSA) is seeking volunteers to help run the college's table at tomorrow's (Wednesday, January 18) Chimeratopia Community Fair from approximately 1:30 to 4 p.m. in the atrium in front of the Nave (where A2 Café is located).

Come meet new and returning students while supporting the Queer/Straight Alliance. Visibility is key to ensuring all minority groups at the college have the opportunity to engage in dialogue, share experiences, and build supportive friendships—all of which tear down the walls by demystifying our differences.

It's a popular, yet often misquoted, Hollywood line from the 1997 film Field of Dreams, starring Kevin Costner: "If you build it, [they] will come." Well, CCA built it (and published it) and now the college wants everyone to come see the newly redesigned website, just in time for the start of the spring semester! We hope the entire CCA community is pleased with the results.
