As promised earlier, I did attend another New Horizons Forum last night. This one happened to be on a topic that I, and many other New Yorkers, have become very interested in lately: The Marcellus Shale Layer and its role in Hydrofracking. If you aren't aware of what Hydrofracking is, here's a definition that I found:
After the recent flooding that occurred around the state, many students and organizations here at Alfred pulled together to help the victims of this disaster. Dorms have put together programs to raise funds for the victims, as well as gathered clothing and supplies. In my dorm, we have already started two events, one is a jar war to collect money and the other is a clothing and canned food drive. Later this week the RA's are putting on a "Pie your RA" program to raise more funds for the relief.
