FIGHT! Annual Breast Cancer Walk

The Women’s Center and Strong House are collaborating to sponsor a Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, April 11 (Parents Weekend) from 10:00am – 1:00pm.  All proceeds from this walk will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a nonprofit organization that supports breast cancer research, treatment, and education, and two local organizations.  The walk is a leisurely 2-3mile stroll of Vassar’s campus.  It will begin and end at Strong House and is baby carriage and pet friendly.

To participate in the walk we are asking for a donation of $5.00 or more, which comes with a pink wristband and a T-shirt.  (Wristbands and T-shirts are limited to the first 75 to give donations.)  Participants can also sign up under their house and the house that has the most participants will receive an Ice Cream Party.

Sign-up for the walk doesn’t have to be done ahead of time, but please consider signing up in advance.  To pre-register for the walk, the Women’s Center and Strong House will table in the College Center the week of April 5.   Cash or checks are acceptable.  Checks should be made out to: Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  If you’d like to make a contribution, but are unable to attend the walk, donations and sponsorships are welcomed.  100% of your donation will be sent to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and local organizations such as Sisters Network and Miles of Hope.

You can also pre-register yourself and/or parents by emailing Sarah Muenzinger ’10 and Jaleesa Johnston ‘11, Campus Life/Women’s Center Interns, at  Please include the number of people you are registering, the names of the walkers, and specify the donation amount for each walker.  For more information contact the Campus Life Office at 845-437-5426.

Registration and distribution of T-shirts and wristbands will be held the day of the walk in the lobby of Strong House, beginning at 10:00am.

Sunny Days

Spring has sprung! And the sun is shining warmly. Welcome back from break. I hope that everyone found a way to enjoy the time off. While you all were away we were busy here in the Campus Life office organizing the events for the rest of the semester. We will be posting more information about the programming in the coming weeks. So be sure to check back frequently.

Plus! We have made some exciting changes here in the LGBTQ Center to make the space more inviting and spacious. It will also allow our extensive lending library to be moved to the center -- down from the 3rd floor of Main --  making it more accessible to browsing and casual reading.
