Residence Life Programs
Residence Life hosts many annual programs to educate the campus community on diversity and social justice issues. Read below for more information!
Diva La Paz
Diva La Paz is an annual drag show hosted by the Colonia de la Paz staff and Hall Council. It draws over 400 students every year, and seeks to raise awareness about the LGBTQ community. Money is raised for the Tucson LGBTQ center, Wingspan. Be sure to check out the Transgender Awareness passive education room before sitting down for the show!
When: Diva La Paz will be held Friday November 2, 2012.
For 17 years, Residence Life has been hosting an Oxfam Hunger Banquet to raise awareness about hunger and poverty worldwide. Participants are encouraged to fast for 30 hours before the event – the fast is broken at the Hunger Banquet. 30 hours is the average amount of time someone in the US who does not know where there next meal is coming from goes between meals – participants are encouraged to donate the money they would have spent on food during the 30 hours to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. The Saturday after the Hunger Banquet, Residence Life staff take students to volunteer at the Community Food Bank.
When: The 18th Annual Hunger Banquet will be held Tuesday November 13, 2012.
