Queer Student Commission Internships!

Hello lovely folks!
My name is Alice Crowe, and I am this year’s director for the Queer Student Commission. I’m writing today to tell everyone that we are current accepting applications for new interns who are interested in LGBTQIA+ activism for the 2016-2017 school year. Interns are expected to want to get more involved in queer activism and help me plan, organize, and execute a wide variety of events, many of whom have historically been designed by the intern team.
