“NwSSU has been the most inspiring place for us to learn and grow not just as professionals but it’s been our haven away from home.”

He also emphasized the important role that the Norwesians played in this historic commemoration. Activities such as LGBTQ+ Minute to Win it and Students’ Acquaintance Party followed in the afternoon and evening, respectively.
