One of San Francisco’s most beloved annual events SF Pride Parade painted the streets with colors last Sunday. Hundreds of thousands of people from different communities located all around the Bay Area gathered to celebrate the diversity of humanity all around the world.

Above all the colors, diversity and fun things you could spot during the parade, the most glaring detail was the fact that the parade was perceived as a bittersweet celebration. This year’s SF Pride Parade was a form of solace handed out to the victims of the violent shooting in Orlando, and it was presented in the most vivid way possible.

With the help of the president of our very own L.O.V.E. Club, Hiroyuki Enokida, and his friends who helped him with all of his effort in making this happen; Golden Gate University had its own booth for SF Pride Parade for the first time! “The attendance was great!” the officials said, and they have already started planning their attendance for next year’s SF Pride Parade.

Our community thanks Hiro and his team for making our appearance in this year’s parade happen, as well as all of our L.O.V.Ers who attended to the parade to represent our community in the fanciest t-shirts of the crowd!

GGU Social presents…

GGU Social Club IRC

This week’s featured club is Golden Gate University’s Investment Research Club (IRC). Here’s how their description reads:

“We are a group of students who have a passion for finance and investing. We meet bi-monthly to collectively research, analyze, and value companies from an investor’s perspective. 

Through research, networking, and guest speakers, we gain practical skills, knowledge, and connections to help each other increase our aptitude with investments.”

The officers and members of Investment Research Club periodically share recaps, videos and documents from their events and workshops on their Google Docs group, which can be very useful for you future researchers and investors out there.

You can contact the club at ggu.investment.research.club@gmail.com with any questions you may have.
