Friday October, 8th 2004
Our message is "please have a heart and remember that when you are
walking in neighborhoods, you are walking by people's homes."
What we will be doing:
On Friday, October 8th, 2004, small groups of volunteers will be stationed at
street intersections on and off campus for the purpose of engaging students in
brief conversations as they walk downtown, about the issue of walk-by noise and
handing out chocolate hearts. We will be covering most of the major street
intersections that are routes to downtown. It’s a positive way to
support UVM’s neighbors and raise awareness about walk-by-noise.
How to get involved: e-mail Bruce R. Duncan at [log in to unmask] or call
9. Campus Wide Committees ----------------------------
There are many committees around campus that need student representation.
The committees vary in meeting times and dates. Becoming part of a committee
is a great opportunity for students to voice their opinions and make a
difference in the campus community. They make decisions that affect our
community, so get involved.
For more information or an application to be appointed to a committee
contact Emily Berliet, the SGA Vice President, in Billings B-156, or call
10. Golden Key Event ----------------------------
