College Community coming together
around this tragedy, on one hand to 
pay homage to a life cut short, but more
importantly to draw attention to the 
continuing problems of race in this
country and to be in solidarity with our 
colleagues and students who are also
confronted and live with these issues 
on a daily basis,Wednesday, April 4 
has been chosen 
as 
"Hoodie Day

Wear a hoodie 
to honor Trayvon.
