Summary of project We handed out pink donuts to students (funds provided by SGA) in addition to the Rainbow Cadeuceus and "Straight but not narrow" pins. We also put up a piece large piece of paper that said "I support DUCOM LGBT Students and Faculty" and invited others to sign it. The page was entirely filled with signatures by the end of the day and Student Affairs is going to put it up on their wall for everyone to see. We gave out all of our pins and stickers (rainbows) that we printed. Over 10 dozen donuts were eaten, and over 75 signatures received.
