Members of the cast and crew of "BROTHERS" will be on campus in the Blue Lounge for a screening and discussion of their cutting-edge web series. The "BROTHERS" screening and discussion will serve to kick-start WSU Pride Alliance’s Break the Binary Week (April 4-8), a week of events aimed at breaking down often taken-for-granted binaries around sex, gender, and sexuality. Light refreshments will be provided.
Time: 11am - 2pm
Location: Sheehan Hall Lobby
Stop by Sheehan for a large career fair to mingle with representatives from graduate schools and local organizations pertaining to the wide field of psychology. This is a great opportunity to explore graduate programs or look into field experiences and jobs as an undergraduate.
