COLLEGE CONTINUES TO RESPOND TO SEPT. 11TH TERRORIST ATTACKS


11/6/2001

The La Roche College community continues to respond to the tragic events of September 11th. On Tuesday, October 23, the college choir presented “A Concert for Peace: Gathering the Dreamers.” Proceeds from the event went to the American Red Cross to assist in disaster relief efforts following the terrorist attacks.

Nearly 200 people attended the evening of music at the Zappala College Center Square. The concert itself raised more than $500. At the event, Student Government President Natasha Polas presented the America Red Cross with a check for an additional $3000. Students raised that money by gathering donations on campus and in the community.

The College community also offered a helping hand to those hit by the economic slowdown, caused in part by the terrorist attacks. On Saturday, October 27th, the college hosted “Staying Ahead of the Slowdown,” a job and career fair. The event brought more than 100 jobseekers to the Zappala College Center. Many were current or former employees of US Airways, which has been dramatically effected by recent events.

Those that attended the job fair could have their resumes critiqued by graduate students and alumni who volunteered their time. Many of the jobseekers also networked with businesses that sent recruiters and representatives.
