We wanted to end the academic year on a lighter note; for us, that meant a Peeps diorama contest. Yes, Peeps – the marshmallow bunnies and chicks. The contest was open to any member of the UNC community, and we received 30 entries from individuals and groups of students, UNC departments such as Human Resources and Police, and centers such as the Mexican American Studies Society and the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center. The reception also celebrated the award winners, who received official Peeps swag.
