Paint It Pink

October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an international campaign seeking to uplift survivors and current patients and to raise funds for the study and treatment of the disease. It affects women and men, both young and old, though it is most frequently found in women over the age of 50. The campaign encourages the spread of information about the disease, such as its earliest symptoms and the importance of testing.

The UCI Student Center was lit pink at night, in a show of solidarity with individuals whose lives have been affected by the disease. The Student Center remained lit until the end of October.
