The College marked its third annual Human Trafficking Awareness Day with a series of events on Thursday, Oct. 11. The day began with stories from a trafficking survivor. Other sessions included fair trade and its impact on human trafficking, how law enforcement and the courts are working together to combat human trafficking, and screenings of the documentary, "Not My Life," a film that depicts the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Faculty, staff and students gathered outside the Bonnell Building at 11:30 a.m. for the Campus Walk for Awareness: Red Sand Walk (#RedSandProject). Molly Gochman, artist and activist, started the Red Sand Project with the intent of raising awareness of human trafficking and exploitation. By utilizing red sand as a medium, participants are reminded of those suffering this form of modern day slavery.
September 25 may have brought rain, but that didn't dampen anyone's spirits at the Black and Gold Bash. Students took a break between classes to have a bite to eat, have a little fun and learn more about student clubs and organizations, and support services at the College.
Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who are born in the U.S., or by naturalization, have become citizens.
