Students who hurriedly entered through the Huss Center this morning found that they were greeted with music sung by women, cheering, smiling, and stickers.  Every year, students and faculty plan a way to celebrate the day, whether it be through sticker competitions or announcements.

The messages students and faculty were eliciting provided an all-encompassing definition of what it means to be female and the importance of empowering women.

The energy that these students commanded at the beginning of the day surely carried over into the bake sale and additional sticker distribution.
