The Sloss House
Welcome back friends! I hope you had a restful break, and for those of you joining us for the first time, Welcome! Iowa State is a great place to be and you should add the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center to your list of must-visit places on campus.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit the Sloss House before, I’d like to invite you to come and see us soon. We are the two-story house between Gerdin and Curtiss on Central Campus. We have comfortable furniture on our main floor with three rooms to lounge, knit, or study in, a three-computer lab with a printer (printing is free, just bring your own paper!), and a kitchen with a refrigerator, oven, microwave, coffee pot, and bread machine all available for you to use. It is a warm, cozy place for group meetings, quiet reading, or just hanging out to watch our new flat screen t.v.
On the second floor, you will find the staff offices. If you’d like to come talk to someone about volunteering or learning more about the events we sponsor on campus, visit Petey and Liz, the graduate assistants, in the office at the top of the stairs. Also stop and see us if you’d like to set up an appointment with Dr. Penny Rice, Director, or Chris Fowler, Assistant Director. They’re happy to chat with students, staff, and faculty, just make an appointment first.
Also, be sure to check out our event calendar on the Women’s Center homepage as we have many exciting events coming up this semester from observing January as National Stalking Awareness Month to “The Vagina Monologues”. Join us on January 19th for our Reopening and 30th Anniversary kickoff event from 10-2! Enter a drawing to win prizes, have a treat, and learn about the renovations the Sloss House endured this last summer and fall semester.
We’re excited to meet you – and please bring friends!
