Join the Amherst Political Union
The Amherst Political Union was recently founded to serve as a forum for the debate of matters of political concern to the Amherst College community. Conceived in the spirit of avoiding the pitfalls of political apathy, the Union seeks to foster a conversation about the most pressing issues of our day amongst the students, faculty and staff of Amherst. Discarding the archaic format of traditional campus events and lectures, APU debates are provocatively designed to give members and guests of the community opportunities to question and defend ideas on a resolution before the house. See the Event Calendar for more information on our first debate of the year, with Andrew Bacevich and Max Boot, on Nov. 14.
For more information: https://events.amherst.edu/2010/11/14/2859/

We encourage students to think about their next semester schedule so that they can meet with their advisors before the final day."

Red Cross Thank You to Donors
Thanks to everyone who came to donate blood to the Red Cross at the Keefe Campus Center on Wednesday, Nov. 10. Forty-three pints of blood were collected. Donating blood is a simple act that helps save lives. Since each pint of whole blood collected can be separated into various blood components, the blood collected at Amherst College could help treat more than 120 patients. The Red Cross will be back at Amherst College on Thursday, Feb. 17, 2011. The American Red Cross thanks everyone for their support and wishes everyone a safe and healthy holiday season.
