UCA Prism Fall 2013 Calendar of Special Events
Thursday x-Periods- General Meeting
Our general meetings are fairly informal and range from fun activities to educational speakers or presentations. We want it to be a social environment to provide our members a safe zone within the universities so they may feel comfortable speaking their opinions and being who they truly are. Anyone and everyone is welcome!
Sept. 28- Annual Fall Picnic
This is a very low key event where members of other GSAs from around the
area will join us to eat, play games, and connect. This year it will be taking place at Laurel Park in Conway at 6pm.

In honor of coming out week we have scheduled several drag queens and
queens to come and perform. It takes place in the amphitheater during X-period. This is a huge event every year and is always a lot of fun!
