The Environmentalists is a student activist club at Ithaca College. The club was founded in 1988 and its goal is to promote sustainability. In addition to SWIFT, the Environmentalists take on other causes and sustainability activities, like trash clean-ups. The club meets on Mondays at 7 p.m. in Friends 207. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
The African Latino Society event wasn’t advertised. It wasn’t on the event list; the only advertising was student-made fliers and Tweets send out by atendees. Still, dozens of alumni came to the event.
Alumni from the African Latino Society are concerned about the future of the club. When many of them were students, there were very few clubs for students of color. There are many more clubs for people of color than there used to be, so there isn’t as much participation for African Latino Society.
African Latino Society is holding an event to welcome back alumni. Food and music are available in the African Latino Society room in West Tower.
It was supposed to rain all weekend, but luckily for the over 4,000 alumni expected on campus this weekend, it’s going to be a beautiful (if not a bit chilly) day.
