Gay Group Receives New Name

Members of the University's Gay Student Union vote to change the name to the Gay and Lesbian Student Union, in order to be inclusive of women. This shift in nomenclature accompanies what members perceive as a shift in the gendered connotation of the word "gay," which previously signified both sexes, but now implicitly refers to men.
