Jamaica Night @ Carl Becker House
The Cornell University Becker in Service, also known as CUBS, cordially invites you to Jamaica Night at Carl Becker House, on March 18, 2017 at 7:00 pm.
Cornell University Becker in Service (CUBS) is unique to Carl Becker House on Cornell's West Campus. We are dedicated to serving communities and bringing awareness to current issues. Our group has helped local food pantries and assisted living centers. We have organized good drives and many other good will acts. In addition to our local outreach, we plan a service trip each spring to connect with other deserving communities.
This year's trip is to Jamaica. During our trip we will provide help at the schools and work with the local community members. This year we will visit Petersfield High School and Williamsfield All Age School. Both schools have been connected to service projects undertaken by Cornell students in the past and we are excited to go back and provide even more.
Please join us at the Jamaica Night Reception for cocktail hour, dinner, and a silent auction. There will also be entertainment and multiple performances.
Please RSVP at: www.jamaicanight.splashthat.com
We cannot wait to see you there. All the best.
Orientation Leader Applications
Orientation Leaders are student volunteers who serve as mentors during orientation, helping new students feel at home, engaged, and supported upon their arrival on campus. OLs help move new students into their residence halls, work individually with a small group of new students throughout orientation, and assist at & attend events. This is a great way for students to get involved on campus, help new students feel welcome, and be part of an important Cornell tradition!
The volunteer time commitment is approximately:
* 3 hours — OL training during the spring semester
* 16 hours — OL training in August prior to Orientation
* 20 hours — assisting with & attending events, and service as a mentor to a small group of new students throughout Orientation
Indonesian Cultural Night
This year, we will also showcase Indonesian culture and authentic food, and hope to see everyone there.

How To Remove Yourself From A Listserv
We are excited to present the Big Red Shuttle, Cornell's first free late-night transportation service for students who need a safe ride home.
Initially, the Big Red Shuttle provided students with rides during exam periods. However, the need for additional means of late-night transportation has become clear. Now, the Big Red Shuttle is no longer an academic-only resource, but one that provides timely and free transportation to Cornell students everywhere in need of a safe ride home.
Starting Friday, 10/14 , the Big Red Shuttle will run a 20-minute route every Friday and Saturday night from 12am-3am with a professional driver and two student aids trained by Cayuga's Watchers.
