SGA will be conducting the signing of the NO PLACE FOR H8 Banner on March 18th to the 22nd in the Balfour Atrium in collaborative effort with BSA/SAIL/SGA/Alliance/Safe House. This programming is designed to continue the celebration and affirmation of diversity on campus along with the safety of students.

ICB clubswill illustrate some of stereotypes that people get mistreated for by using the outrageous act from fall 2012 (pink shoes hanging from a tree). These acts will be illustrated as “walking advertisements” to actual objects symbolizing a stereotypical association with each club. Clubs participating in the Outrageous Acts are as follow: DWOCC, LSA, AAC, Hillel, FAW, Christian Fellowship, The Alliance, BSA, Renaissance House, and Anime.
Primary Locations: Academic Buildings, Emerson, Library and Balfour-Hood

Wheaton College's WomYn's Dinner will be a special moment to celebrate and showcase our support for women on campus during Women’s History month.
Honor code campaign
March 18th - 29th
The Honor Code Awareness Campaign is going to be the last 2 weeks of March. The goal is to provide engaging and relevant events for the students to reconnect with the Honor Code. As we all have seen over the past few semesters, there have been instances that have dealt with questionable violations of the Honor Code. So, ideally, these two weeks will help students reaffirm their connection with the Honor Code and its importance on the Wheaton Campus. Some of our ideas are:
- Pamphlets (will be distributed during week one)
- Faculty/Student discussion (professors can potentially offer extra credit)
- Mock Trial of a possible honor violations and how they will be handled
- Flash Seminar (one each week)
- Photo campaign (March 29th)
These ideas are not final.
Passport to World: Language Club
Passport to Europe was an event featured last year during the spring semester to showcase the diverse and vibrant cultures of European nations. Represented countries included Italy, Germany, Russia, and France. The event consisted of a variety of foods, activities, performances, and cultural elements that celebrated the depth of global variety. The idea for this year is to create a larger event that includes even more cultures and countries. The added states will provide students with an even greater breadth of language, culture, and entertainment.
No Stupid Questions – IFA/Res. Life
Wed. March 20th at 7pm Mary Lyon
Participants will be able to ask a diverse student panel questions anonymously regarding identity specifically on religion. This event took place last semester and we feel it conflicted with other events; therefore we would like to open it up again this semester. It will be aimed towards creating a safe environment where questions can be asked and answered. Participants will also learn how to properly ask questions and discuss topics around religion/faith inside and outside of the classroom.
