Last night was our annual Breast Cancer Reception, co-hosted with Bentley’s Colleges Against Cancer. The food, shirts, and bingo all combined well. We had a great number of people sign up for the buses. If you would like to attend the walk with the Women’s Center, please contact our chair. The walk is this Sunday!

Tonight was the Grand Reopening of the Bentley University Women’s Center. While we are of course still adjusting to our new space, we are exceedingly happy with it and look forward to our future in LaCava 120.
There was a great turnout from both faculty and students, which made it a terrific event. We were all able to meet new people while celebrating our successful reopening.
If you missed the event (which had some great food), feel free to stop by at any time. We love having visitors, many of whom simply do homework, hang out, watch tv, or pass time between classes. Remember: LaCava 120 is a great alternative to the library if you’d like a place to study yet sprawl our a bit!
This past Sunday, we went to the Greater Boston Food Bank. It was a great cause, which we were happy to be a part of for the day. This event had a great turnout, as we collaborated on it with Circle K. For more information on our upcoming volunteer events, please refer to our Events page.
Today we had our monthly (or so) volunteer event at Waltham Crossings. We had a great time helping the residents create fall-themed decorations for their doors. As always, the residents were in great spirits; all had a grand time. We look forward to returning in November, when we will be creating pineapple turkeys for the residents to bring to their family Thanksgiving dinners. Keep an eye out for sign-ups!
Thank you to all who attended our first general meeting this afternoon. It was held in our NEW CENTER, located at LaCava 120 - just two halls down from our prior location. We are in the process of making the space truly feel like our new home, with which we welcome all members’ input.
If you missed this meeting yet would like to be involved in the center, please feel more than welcome to attend our regularly scheduled general meetings, every Monday at 2:10 pm in the Women’s Center at LaCava 120. If you are unable to attend, contact us and we will keep you up to date with meeting minutes, volunteer opportunities, and events!
Welcome back to the 2010 Fall Semester at Bentley! We hope everyone had amazing summers and a great move in this past weekend. Fall is a great time to broaden one’s horizons - and why not start with the Women’s Center? We welcome everyone - come to one meeting, come to them all, or just take part in our events. We enjoy learning more about all people’s viewpoints (or you can just observe), so attend a meeting or simply stop by during any office hours. (Visiting at any point in the day allows for a great destressing, discussion, homework, or even nap space!) We are welcome to all and love getting new visitors!
We will be at the Fall Activities Fair, held on the Greenspace. (Rain location is Student Center.) We’d love for you to visit us! Sign-ups for volunteer events will be there, though you can also email our co-chair to do so.
Hope to see you there!
