What do you like about your time at the W?
“I wanted to find a place where I could connect with people and find a smaller community on campus. I have definitely found that at the W.”
“There’s so many things to choose from. It’s great to see everyone here and develop friendships with the volunteers and staff. It’s a great support system.”
“I wanted to start taking accountability as a male on campus. I wanted to change myself and help change the university. I think I have grown so much while I’ve been here and I love being in this space”
“I tend to think of the W as a help center, which it can be, but it’s also a place to come on a day-to-day basis. You don’t have to come to the W because you need help but you can come here to just have a place to sit.”
“I really like the community. I’ve made a lot of good friends here and that has helped me thrive on campus.”“I like the conversations I have with other people during office hours. The conversations seem to center on women’s rights and women’s issues. I feel like it’s a safe place to not be judged.”
What have you learned from your time at the W?
“I’ve learned a lot more about the resources on campus and what’s available to who. If I don’t know the details I know where to find them.”
“I’ve really expanded my idea of social justice and how to apply feminism to social justice in my time at the WRC.”
“I think the main thing I’ve learned at the W is making and maintaining contacts and using them wisely to create more relationships with other groups.”
“I’ve learned to say “I’m a feminist” instead of “I’m a feminist, but...” It’s been really inspiring to be here.”
“There are a million kinds of women and they are different in so many ways. None is better than the other, but our differences make us unique. They are important and it’s important that we work with our differences and not against them.”
