VC celebrating Women’s History Month with activities for students

Victoria College is celebrating Women’s History Month with events and activities for students and employees throughout the month of March. In the United States, March is designated as Women’s History Month to celebrate the contributions of achievements of women throughout American history.

Throughout March, visitors to the VC Library will see a display of selected works written by females. Signs showcasing facts about influential women are also being displayed on the first floor of the VC Library.

The Latin American Student Organization (LASO) Club is featuring inspirational Latina women in Victoria College publications and social media accounts during Women’s History Month.

VC’s Student Life Office will host a donation drive benefiting Mid-Coast Family Services Women’s Crisis Center and Perpetual Help Home on March 21-31. Donation boxes will be set up at various locations on VC’s Main Campus. Donations being collected include adult socks, underwear, sports bras, pillows, diapers (larger sizes), bath towels, toilet paper, paper towels, hygiene products, detergent, sanitary products, and cleaning supplies.

The Student Life Office will host Coffee, Cookies and Thank You’s on Tuesday, March 22 at the Student Center. VC students and employees will have the opportunity to write a special note to a woman who has inspired them and to take a carnation to give to a woman who has made a special impact in their life.

Women’s health will be spotlighted during an event on Tuesday, March 29 at Citizens Convenient Care at Victoria College. Healthy foods will be served. The clinic, located in VC’s Continuing Education Center, provides on-campus medical care for VC students and employees on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to noon and Wednesdays from 1 to 5 p.m.

VC’s Student Life Department will conclude the month-long celebration with a free meal and presentation by Chelsea Bradley, VC’s Assistant Psychology Professor. Bradley’s presentation is titled “Stop Apologizing: How Women Can Advocate for Themselves in the Workplace.”
