What campus resources have you taken advantage of?

How have you been involved on campus?

I commute from home, so I spend all day in Shields Library. The individual cubicles are great for powering through homework assignments, while the larger tables are great for completing group projects or study sessions. Also, the Student Community Center is a valuable place for me as a commuting Muslim, as I can complete my prayers in the Reflection Room without having to leave campus.

I have been going to ME/SA events since my freshman year, and I try to be involved by going to events hosted by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual Resource Center. I am very involved in activist circles, and I love being a part of protests. I am also a part of Asian and PaciďŹ c Islander Queers (APIQ), a club where I have found a beautiful sense of community.
