Be Proud. Be You. Pride Prom 2018.

Article *
On behalf of the Pride Prom 2018 Planning Team, consisting of the LGBTQ+ Resource Center, MUSG Program Board, Late Night Marquette, and Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA), we would like to invite you to attend our community event, Pride Prom 2018. Pride Prom 2018 is being held on April 14, 2018 at Marquette University in the Alumni Memorial Union Ballrooms from 8-11pm. Featuring Performances by: Ricardo Wynn, Emcee ; Gold ‘n Blues, acapella performance; HYPE, dance performance; Dance, Inc. Marquette, dance performance. A full list of supporters and co-sponsors of this event can be found at https://tinyurl.com/prideprom2018.

The planning team sees this event as an opportunity and responsibility to engage with our larger community, both on and off campus, in a way that fosters support, inclusiveness, and value for individuals of all identities. We believe that people entering this space will be able to walk away, touched in mind and heart, observing the diversity that happens within our community and the message of inclusion it espouses. Our hope is that every individual that walks away feels that Marquette University is a place for them and they can see themselves in the “We”, in “We Are Marquette”.


This event is Open to MIAD Students, Staff/Faculty, Alumni, and their guests as well as area community members. However, this is an Advanced Tickets Only event and tickets will not be available at the door.

You can get your tickets more than one way:

MIAD Students, Faculty/Staff, Alumni, and their Guests: Drop by the LGBTQ+ Resource Center with your MIAD/Marquette ID and we will be able to get you your tickets. We have staff available from 9-12am and 3-5pm Monday – Friday and from 5-7pm on Monday and Thursday. We will also be ticketing in the AMU from 11 – 2 This Tuesday – Friday.

If you are unable to make it in person, you are able to utilize the link and access code for MIAD Students, Staff/Faculty, and Guests:
Link: https://muprideprom2018.eventbrite.com
Access Code: please contact Sara Thor for access code by 2:00pm Friday April 13.

PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you not share this access code publicly, given that we have had protestors/outside parties that are against this event. Although we are taking measures to protect the safety and enjoyment of the event, we are asking folx to not share this via any social media.

We are excited about this event and we hope you are able to join us for a momentous occasion on Marquette’s campus.

Trouble staying on top of things? Try this:

1. When you begin your day, take a few minutes and write down all of the tasks you want to accomplish for that day.

2. Look at the list and prioritize it.

3. Review your schedule for the day and plan on starting the task that is highest priority at your first opportunity (i.e., during a break from class, while riding the bus, etc.)

4. Try it for a few days to see if the habit works for you. Habits form over time: how much time depends on you and the habit.

For more ideas about staying on top of your assignments, visit a peer tutor in the LRC to do some brainstorming about strategies that will work for you!
