Frebruary 15 weekend
We went down to New York City!! In the city we used the subway to get around which was really cool. we went to the lower east side Tenement museum to see what life was like when the immagrants came over. We also went to China Town to enrich ourself with a completely different culture. On Sunday night we went to see RENT on broadway! That was a really awsome show to see.

Newman Club, Hillel, and Anthropology/ Socioglogy will take turns sitting at a table during lunch and dinner on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The table will serve three purposes. the main purpose will be to pursuade people to sign their april 12 dinner meal away for the Matthew Shephard Foundation. A sign a meal away is when the money that is used for your dinner, is given to the Foundation, and your meal is taken away from the dining hall system, so you can't eat in the dining hall for the meal. Last year the sign a meal away was on Easter, but due to time circumstances, Friday night dinner, was the best option to choose from. The second purpose will be to raise awareness of diversity and hate crimes through personal stories which will be posted on a self-mounted board, and through quotes and statistics. The third purpose will be to advertise for the movie on Wednesday.
