Message from MOCC Steering Committee

Hello MOCC Attendees,

We are very excited for you to join us on the campus of St Cloud State University this weekend for the 6th annual Minnesota OUT! Campus Conference.

This conference is a chance for you to network and build coalitions with students from all over Minnesota.  You will have the chance to talk about issues and topics that are being faced on campuses and the larger community.  You will also be challenged as well as learn valuable skills to further your developing leadership through several keynote speakers, a movie showing, an out professionals panel, and six sessions of  fun, exciting, and exhilarating workshops.  We will also be providing entertainment both on Friday and Saturday night.  We have a Mas’queer’ade ball on Friday night and on Saturday, we are having an SCSU Drag Show.


Please read all signs when parking on campus.  Most lots are open and free starting at 3 P.M. on Friday through the weekend; we cannot make any guarantees for parking.  There will be signs throughout campus directing you to Atwood Memorial Center where you can check in.
