The Safe Space of Spectrum

Audrey’s Corner is a space of kindness and positivity that was established in 2018 in honor of junior Audrey Niblo. She was a friendly and optimistic influence in her personal and student life.

One of the goals of Audrey’s Corner is to emulate the values she followed in life. However, Audrey was also bullied for part of her life and was very open about her struggles.

Audrey’s Corner aims to provide a safe space for students, faculty and staff to express their thoughts on topics which relate to Audrey’s values, struggles and triumphs. We welcome creative pieces, such as stories, poems, photography and art, as well as interviews and journalistic articles from anyone in the Sacred Heart University community.

In honor of Audrey’s memory, we have provided a list of free, on-campus resources for students. If you or someone you know is looking for support, whether that be academic or emotional, please know that you are not alone, and feel free to take a look at the information below.
