Greetings from Hanover! My name is Peter Struckmeyer, and I am a second-year student at Tuck, as well as one of the co-chairs for Tuck Pride. We just finished our first week of the school year here, and as part of that, kicked off the year for Tuck Pride!
Earlier in the week, as part of Tuck’s Club Fair, we met with first-year students to give them an overview of what Tuck Pride does throughout the year. A big hit at this year’s club fair were our Ally stickers – Tuck’s ally community is incredibly supportive, and they showed this support by wearing their pride flags while tabling for their respective organizations.
As Tuck’s club for LGBTQ+-identified students and partners, we host several events on campus throughout the year, including (but not limited to):
And of course, we have smaller scale events for our tight-knit group of students and partners who identify as part the LGBTQ+ community! This is our most common type of events: whether it be brunch, dinner, movie night, or more. In fact, we had our first Tuck Pride brunch this past weekend to kick-off the year, featuring delicious food from Lou’s (a Hanover staple which is run by a Tuck alum!).
Tuck Pride is a vibrant, tight-knit community. Above all, it’s a family, one which has been instrumental in my Tuck experience. I hope you’ll join the family!
Want to learn more about Tuck Pride? Come to Hanover and meet us at the following on-campus events:
Additionally, we’ll be in Atlanta at this year’s Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) Conference, a recruiting event that is specifically for companies to meet with LGBTQ+-identified MBA students. This is another highlight of the year for Tuck Pride, and one that has proven to be an invaluable recruiting experience year over year.
That’s all for now! Hope to see you on campus soon as part of the Tuck Pride family.
