Topic: End of the Semester Celebration

We brought food and drink to share together to celebrate the end of a highly productive year in the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies FIG. More importantly, we honored Susan Farrell’s work as co-director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Concentration. She stepped down, Alison Better and Amy Washburn joined Caterina Pierre as the new WGS co-directors, and we wanted to celebrate Susan Farrell’s legacy in that role.
