2018 Chocolate Festival

2018 Chocolate Festival

Chocolate… cakes, cookies, pies, ice cream, flowing from fountains… the NC State Chocolate Festival is that and so much more! In addition to all the chocolate, the silent auction, the fun and games, the Chocolate Festival is about breast cancer. Breast cancer shows no discrimination– all ages, all genders, all races and ethnicities – everyone can get breast cancer.

This year, NC State University’s sweetest tradition, the Chocolate Festival, will be held in Talley Student Union on September 28. Hosted by the NC State Women’s Center, the Chocolate Festival incorporates one of America’s sweetest treats in an event that supports and educates about breast cancer. You will be able to sample a variety of different chocolate items from vendors around Wake County. There will be games to play, items to bid on and an opportunity to learn more about breast cancer awareness. Proceeds benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and the NC State Women’s Center.

Feminist Friday @ Women's Center
Sep 21 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Join the Women’s Center for our weekly Feminist Friday discussions. Every week we have a new topic and an engaging student facilitator designed to help you think critically about everyday issues.

Feminist Fridays thrive as both a community and an opportunity for participants to engage, question, and challenge their core assumptions and beliefs in ways that yield transformative learning. This tradition provides a space for critical discussion and in-depth reflection, often provoking dissonance in both the facilitators and the audience. Anyone who attend will walk away thinking about the intersections of their own identities as well as others and how they interact with and are impact by systemic oppressions.

If you are interested in facilitating please contact the Women’s Center at womens-center@ncsu.edu.
