On Sept. 30, the staff of the Women’s Resource Center hosted their annual open house event to promote the services they offer to students of City College.

The event kicked off with the center’s staff presenting commendations to the faculty who help make the center a warm and welcoming place for students.

Refreshments and lunch from Spicy Pepper were served by student volunteers as visitors listened to spoken word performances, joined together in dance and learned of the valuable resources provided by the center.

The Women’s Resource Center offers students access to health care, safer sex supplies, as well as a library of feminist and political writings. They are located at Smith Hall 103 and open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
