Campus Resources


WCPride is an organization that strives to give both queer individuals and allies a place where they can feel safe to express their identity. WC PRIDE strives to educate others and themselves, by raising awareness about sexual and gender identities, and working with other campus groups towards eliminating intolerance and prejudice. While we plan fun events to break up our schoolwork on campus, we also like to observe issues both on and off campus and practice activism.
