Equity And Inclusion Carnival To Return January 13

This semester’s Equity and Inclusion Carnival will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday, January 13. The carnival will be located in Alumni Hall in the HUB and spill into the nearby TV lounge on the first floor.

The Equity and Inclusion Carnival, held at the beginning of each semester, is in place to help students identify and join “advocacy or identity-based units and organizations.” Many key resources on campus will be present, including the Gender Equity Center, the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, and the Multicultural Resource Center.

Students should expect to see lots of other student organizations that they can get involved with, too.

Even though it’s still too cold to have the carnival outdoors, there won’t be any shortage of activities. Students will find a caricature artist, an inflatable skee ball game, food, and music from a student DJ while browsing resources and organizations that Penn State has to offer.

The Equity and Inclusion Carnival is organized by Student Orientation and Transition Programs and various other campus resources. The organizers hope to see the event continue to grow in future semesters and feature more student organizations.

“Our main goal is to connect students with these organizations, services, or resources that they may not be aware of or know how to access,” Ben Giuliana, assistant director of welcome programs, said. “We’re bringing it to students in a fun way so it doesn’t feel like a chore to find these resources that are really valuable to them.”
