Need to Stretch Your Legs?

Contributed by Doreen Hettich-Atkins on 04/25/2008 

Volunteers are still needed for the Ithaca Multiple Sclerosis Walk on Sunday, May 4, 2008!

Volunteers are needed to support those who have raised money and will be walking 3 miles to help support people in our area with multiple sclerosis (MS). Many with MS are no longer able to walk and have had that ability taken from them by this debilitating disease. The walkers walk these 3 miles for those who can no longer enjoy such a privilege.

End of the Year Receptions/Picnics

Contributed by Suzanne Smith on 04/25/2008 

Submitted on behalf of Brian McAree, vice president for student affairs and campus life.

It is that time of year again when picnics, receptions, and banquets are held to celebrate the completion of the academic year, students' accomplishments, and Commencement. Many times, such events take place off campus, at private homes and other locations. If alcohol will be available for students in attendance, it is important to remember the responsibilities that are associated with such an event.

If you are advising a student group or working with a group that is planning an event, there are some important considerations which should be addressed. It is imperative that you uphold the laws which state that alcohol must not be served to anyone under the age of 21 and that it is illegal to serve individuals of legal drinking age who are intoxicated. As officials of the College, it is our responsibility to prevent such occurrences. A faculty or staff member who is involved in the sponsorship or supervision of an event places both him-/herself and the institution in jeopardy should the law be broken at that event. This could result in serious liability problems.
