About QSU Today
QSU’s general body meets every other Thursday at 8:30pm in the Wesley Foundation. Along with updating our members on QSU activities and offering opportunities for member content, each QSU meeting includes an hour of education on a queer-related topic. Run by the VP of Education, these programs help to arm our members and the broader UVA community with the knowledge necessary to understand and empathize with queer issues.
Outside of meetings, QSU hosts biweekly social events like movie nights, picnics, or board game parties. QSU also hosts a semesterly Drag Bingo––look for it on the list of 117 Things to Do Before You Graduate––to showcase student drag talent and raise money for our organization. We also run an internal Bigs/Littles program and a Queer Mentors volunteer program that pairs QSU members with Charlottesville LGBTQ high schoolers. The Vice President of Student Activism hosts Pronouns Workshops, panel discussions, and other advocacy-related events throughout the year and pursues broader policy changes for the University. Current activism projects include offering gender neutral student housing and introducing an optional LGBTQ-identifier question on the University’s admissions application.
