Summer Camp Supply Drive
The nonprofit organization Orisun Collective is organizing a supply drive for their annual summer camp in Lagos, Nigeria for secondary school students.
Donations will be collected for supplies such as notebooks, used or new digital cameras, pens, pencils, art supplies (crayons, paints, colored markers, chalk), and non perishable snacks (trail mix, granola bar, and crackers). They would really appreciate our support. There are donation boxes set up in Keeton and Ujamaa.

How To Remove Yourself From A Listserv
The Big Red Shuttle
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.
