Welcome Back!
Welcome Back Everyone to the new year of 2014. I truly hope all of you had an amazing and stress free winter break. Now don't be shy, come down to the LGBT Resource Center and say hi to me. I'd love to see all your lovely faces:)

I just wanted to take this time to express my love and appreciation for  Beyonce's new album. I seriously cannot stop listening to her and watching all the videos. Right now she is my inspiration and gives me so much confidence!
Thank you for listening.

Now for logistics:
- New Year, New Newsletter
- Newsletter will come out on Wednesdays starting Week 2, Yay!
- Weekly statistics will come back starting Week 2 as well!

Now that is all!
