The Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women will host “Welcome Back, Women,” a networking event for the new school year, Thursday, Sept. 6, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

The free, public event will include food, music and a tent in the parking lot by the main entrance of the Eberly Center, which is located in Tucker Hall.

“We want to create an informal networking opportunity for women and encourage the campus community to know more about the Eberly Center,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, associate vice president for equity, diversity and community engagement.

“The Eberly Center has always been about empowering ourselves and supporting each other. It is a great place to reconnect with colleagues and meet new ones,” she added.

Gore said she not only hoped people unfamiliar with the Eberly Center would turn out, but that people who have not been there in a long time would re-familiarize themselves with the changes at the center. She said the staff will be available to give tours and answer questions about the center.

Some of the renovations to the Eberly Center include a quiet room for breast-feeding and a library room, which used to be housed in the computer lab.
