Meet the Interns!

 It’s the beginning of a new semester here at Chico State and at the AS GSEC that means new interns! Our interns are the ones who make awesome events like The Vagina Monologues and Take Back the Night happen. Here’s the Spring 2014 line up.


Adrianna McCain-- Fun fact: I can pick things up with my feet.

 Ary Carvalho-Mires--  I can burp the ABC's! 

Brooke Silveria--I was raised by a pack of librarians.


Eliza Dyer-- I've been an organizer for the Chico Chapter of Food Not Bombs for over two years and I can't whistle or ride a bike. 

Emilee Hunt--I grew up in California but have family in Arkansas and claim to be southern despite having never lived there. I, by default, have a southern accent and have to control it whenever I talk! Country music, cowboy boots, southern food, and the regions at large (Arkansas/Memphis, Tennessee) are near and dear to my heart!


Jasmine Batchelder--I love the ocean, cats, Harry Potter, & black licorice.



Katrina Cameron-- is also editor-in-chief at The Orion and will intern at the Sacramento Bee this summer. She's been passionate about journalism, storytelling and writing for a very long time, so these are gratifying accomplishments for her."


Kristin Rounds--I wish I knew how to play the saxophone! It gives off a really cool vibe.

 Liz Alire--I am a certified yoga instructor.


 Lizz Cole—I LOVE Indian Cuisine. I could literally eat Indian cuisine every day for the rest of my life.



Maddy Leroy-- I've made a bucket list of restaurants I need to go to based on endless episodes of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

Nicole Sanchez-- I'm an animal lover and a vegetarian, who is deathly afraid of geese.

Rachel Ward—I’m borderline obsessed with Tegan and Sara, and the Rapinoe sisters. I want to be their best friend, line the same neighborhood, and watch our kids become best friends with each other someday.  


Sally Rodriguez-- I am a vegetarian and enjoy surreal art.



Rachel Schmit (Schmitty)-- I love adventure, taking off and discovering the unknown. Whether it’s getting lost in nature, or discovering a new place or city, you will never ind me in one place for long!


Travis Lull-- I've always considered myself a music person... Not the awesome kind that can play an instrument and actually make music, but the kind that just spends inordinate amounts of money on records and cassettes and excessive audio and listening equipment. My record collection grows all the time as my wallet seems to become progressively emptier; with the fulfillment and joy that all genres of music provide me, I wouldn't have it any other way.

 Each intern is a passionate activist with their own special skills and talents that will be an asset to the GSEC. We hope to see everyone at all our events this spring. Follow us on our facebook page at

VDAY 2014: The Vagina Monologues

Sarah Sullivan
The Gender and Sexuality Equity Center
(530) 898-5724



The Associated Students Gender and Sexuality Equity Center of Chico State presents V-Day’s ‘The Vagina Monologues’ in the Bell Memorial Union Auditorium on Friday, Feb. 14th at 7:30 pm, Saturday, Feb. 15th at 2 pm, and at 7:30 pm. Presale tickets are $10 for students $13 for general admission. All tickets are $15 at the door.
Attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance at the University Box Office located at the corner of Third and Chestnut near the Chico State Police Station. Proceeds of the 2014 V-Day performance of The Vagina Monologues will be divided among V-DAY, The Associated Students Gender and Sexuality Equity Center, Catalyst Domestic Violence Services and Stop Trafficking of Persons (STOP).

The AS Gender and Sexuality Equity Center’s annual spring production of award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women's sexuality and strength. For more than twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.

This year the play is directed by local theater veterans Erin A. Tarabini and Cat Campbell. As fans of Eve Ensler and the Vagina Monologues, Cat and Erin are very excited to be working on this year’s production. They hope to put their own spin on a fan favorite and look forward to seeing the cast’s hard work pay off! The Vagina Monologues is performed by local Chico actresses.

This event is put on by the staff at The GSEC, which is an expansion of the Women’s Center as part of our efforts to promote human rights and the equal representation of marginalized students on Chico State’s campus. The GSEC provides a secure and identifiable space for students to collaborate, plan events, voice concerns and connect with the university while striving toward common goals of promoting equal rights and representation in our community.
