Do you have family/friends with college-aged children who are curious about applying to (and paying for!) college? Are you concerned about economic barriers? Are you wondering about how to support students who are refugees, immigrants, youth of color, or first generation college attendees so that they can successfully and confidently access higher education?
If your answer is “Yes!,” then you should sign-up for this Barack Obama inspired initiative that Burlington is now hosting for it’s second year in a row. Please see the flyer and press release below, and be sure to register for the FREE event in advance by clicking on this link.
The event will be held on Friday, November 3rd from 3pm-6pm in the Creative Media Building at Champlain College (375 Maple Street).

Please have a look at the minutes from our most recent UE Safety Committee meeting. A recent issue that impacts Custodial is blind cleaning at U-Heights. These blinds are located high in the air, so the current plan is for Custodial to use an extension pole (rather than a ladder) for cleaning. If you have comments about this issue or anything else that is safety related, then please send an email to either Caleb (email@example.com) or the committee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
