Last week the college announced several staffing changes within the Office of Student Affairs.

In an email to the campus community, Dean of Students Alex Vasquez and Chief Student Affairs Officer Suzanne Coffey introduced the new staff members. Demitrius Brown is the new Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Student Life. Leykia Brill will serve as the Associate Director for Student Activities and Engagement. Corry Colonna is the new Associate Director for Residential Life, and Laura Laver and Michael Vidal are the two new Area Coordinators.

October. Which means fall is well underway and the leaves have already started changing colors. Also, Halloween. Oh, and for us college students, the flurrying panic to cram in extra studying for midterms. What else? Ah, it’s also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Oh, yeah ... Breast Cancer Awareness Month ... I see.

Really? So, what exactly is the point in designating the entire month of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? What does this even mean?
