Students Recognize World AIDS Day with Quilt, Panel Discussion
Several panels from the AIDS Quilt will be displayed on campus in conjunction with World AIDS Day on December 1. A panel of experts will also discuss AIDS at 11:00 a.m. in the Piedmont Room in the Student Center Commons. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend both events.
Each panel of the AIDS quilt is comprised of eight patches. Each patch symbolizes a life lost to AIDS. Three panels of the AIDS quilt will be displayed in the Campus Recreation Center. An additional set of panels will be on display in the Student Center from 10:00 a.m. â€“ 2:00 p.m.
Several Georgia Tech student organizations are responsible for coordinating the events, specifically MOVE, Pride Alliance, and GT HEROs.
