Then I began to ponder... How on Earth was I invited to such a thing? I made a few calls and found that the most likely answer was a recommendation from the GLBTSU's advisor, who is the VP of student living and openly gay (in fact, his favorite ice-breaker is the fact that when you type "ECU gay" into google he pops up). Okay - cool beans so far.
So what the hell do I wear? I actually considered (for about 1.3 seconds) wearing a manly shirt with jeans and a jacket - then came to my senses. Just because I'm meeting the chancellor of a huge university doesn't mean I shouldn't be myself; in fact, it's the opposite. Especially if the head of student housing has got my back.
In conclusion, I'll be dining with the ECU's Chancellor in a blue satin dress and red leather pumps. I can't wait.
