If the weather forecasts are truethis could be the last edition of the e-Pulse, and the end of life as we know it. Let's hope that's not the case, but just to be sure we go out on a high note, we made this latest version of the e-Pulse our best yet. Umbrella not required.
Nobody Gonna Break Their Strides
Large groups of faculty and students from both the Albany and Vermont Campuses turned out for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks held this past weekend in Albany and Burlington. The two campuses combined to raise more than $4,500 to help increase awareness for breast cancer and support the American Cancer Society's research efforts.
Recovering Addict's Talk Highlights Substance Abuse Awareness Week 
Organized by the Office of Counseling and Wellness and the Initiative for Substance Abuse Prevention, the annual Substance Abuse Awareness Week included a variety of thought provoking activities. But perhaps none were as powerful as the presentation by UAlbany student Charlotte Gorman (pictured here), who discussed her addiction to prescription medications and alcohol and detailed her ongoing recovery efforts.

The Panthers are seeded 5th and will play Paul Smith's College in the first round of the tournament on Thursday, November 1 at 11:00 am (apparently the schedule makers didn't know that Asheville is a 13-hour bus ride from Albany).
ACPHS Adds Three New Members to the College's Board of Trustees

Taking a Bite of the Apple (iPad)

The Division of Innovative Learning and Academic Support Services recently hosted the College's first iPad users group meeting. Sue Iwanowicz, Director of Library Services, discussed how iPads are being used to help students better navigate the library. Peter Aiello, Vice President of the Student Government Association, demonstrated how SGA is using iPads to better track attendance at events and then taking that information to improve future events.
