NeW at Boston University commemorated its first month of being on campus with a celebratory dinner on Thursday, October 8.
Because two e-board members have already faced backlash, slander, and rumors due to their political affiliations in the chapter’s short existence, the event could not have come at a better time, members said. The event gave five NeW women the opportunity to get to know each other better while enjoying dinner at a local establishment. Attendees found support in connecting with one another, walking away feeling confident in their mission on campus and prepared to face any criticism that comes their way.
“This dinner meant so much because of the timing of everything going on in my personal life, and because of the women I’ve met from NeW, I was able to stay strong and lean on them for support. This dinner was celebrating our anniversary, but it was also a celebration of how the club was going the way I envisioned from the start,” Chapter President Samantha Feigelson said.
