Help Name SLC Varsity & Recreation Teams 

SLC Athletics is asking for help naming varsity and recreation teams for the 2020-21 academic year! Staff, faculty, students, and alumni are being asked to submit name suggestions in support of a new tri-campus delivery of varsity programing. Share your ideas and be entered to win a $100 gift card to the bookstore. Submissions close September 27! 

One college, three campuses, one name.  

In 2018, SLC’s athletic varsity teams, the Brockville Schooners, Cornwall Sharks, and Kingston Vikings, were amalgamated for membership within the Ontario College Athletic Association (OCAA). This allowed for easier cross campus participation, significantly reduced costs, created more competitive varsity teams, and provided new recreational opportunities, Now, we need a new name!

News From the SLC Retirees Association 

If you’ve announced your retirement, or are contemplating it soon, you are probably feeling mixed emotions – counting the days until you can leave your work behind or worrying about what you will do to fill up your time when you no longer have work responsibilities.  

Whatever emotions you may be feeling, you can be sure that they have previously been experienced by members of the St. Lawrence College Retirees Association. Established in 2004, our Association comprises well over 100 former employees from all three campuses – support, academic, and administrative staff. Our members includes artists, environmentalists, active community volunteers, intrepid travelers, government leaders (the Winter Mayor of Myrtle Beach) and folks who are perfecting the art of doing as little as possible, while enjoying it immensely.  

While we advocate on matters of interest to our members, including pensions, our focus is primarily on social activities, held several times each year. One of the favourites is the 19th hole gathering in conjunction with the annual Golf Tournament that is held on the first day of classes every fall – as a reminder of the happy reality of our retired status.  

Please have a look at our activities and photos of many of our members by visiting our website at www.slcretirees.weebly.com. You can contact us there, or by emailing slcretires@gmail.com. We hope you will give us a chance to show you that “the best is yet to come.”

Take Back the Night in Cornwall 

Staff, faculty and students are invited to join in a local rally and march in support of Take Back the Night. This year, attendees will walk down Second St. and back following speeches. The event is supported by The CEIU Local 621’s Women’s Committee.

History 

Take Back the Night is the earliest worldwide movement to stand up against sexual violence. TBTN Events began in the 1960’s in Belgium and England, with protests about how women were not able to walk safely down the street alone.  In 1973, in the United States, a group of women at the University of Southern Florida dressed in black sheets holding broomsticks and marched through campus demanding a women’s centre.  These early events have grown into hundreds of events on college campuses and in communities of all sizes and locations.  The unifying theme of these events is to raise awareness of sexual violence and to provide support for victims. To learn more about the history of TBTN events please visit the Take Back the Night Foundation website.  
 
When: Thursday, September 19, 2019 
6:30pm – 9pm 

Location: St. Lawrence College, Cornwall, 2 St. Lawrence Dr.  

For more information about the event, please visit the Take Back the Night event Facebook page.
