Hey Y'all,
I know this year is finally coming to an end. All I want to say is I had a blast being the Rainbow Newsletter Intern for the 2013-2014 year. Good luck with all your finals and congrats to all the undergrads and graduate students that will be graduating this June! Y'all did it:) Have a great summer.
-Jes, Rainbow Newsletter Intern
Rainbow Graduation 2014

Rainbow Graduation & Induction into the LGBT Alumni Ceremony
Saturday, June 7th, 4:00pm
at the Ida and Cecil Green Faculty Club
Please join the UC San Diego LGBT community as we come together to honor the students who are graduating, our volunteers, our scholarship recipients and all who have impacted our community over the last year. The event serves as the formal induction of the graduates into the family of the UC San Diego LGBT Alumni. Although many people do get dressed up for the event, it tends to be a queer little get together, with all the trappings of our community, so be yourself. We conclude our ceremony with a scrumptious spread of good food.
