Cans Around the Oval today
More than 140 campus and community groups will congregate on the Oval today at 10 a.m. to participate in the 23rd annual Cans Around the Oval.
CSU President Tony Frank and Amy Pezzani from the Larimer County Food Bank will put the first two cans on the Oval and groups, which have been collecting donations for about a month, will continue to line the area until 4 p.m.
The weight of each groupâ€™s food drive collections will be tallied during the event, which is the largest donation drive for the Larimer
County Food Bank every year. The event is hosted by Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement.
During last yearâ€™s Cans Around the Oval, 13,000 individuals collected 90,000 pounds of food and circled the Oval 45 times. The teams raised $27,000 in donations last year as well.
Attend a session on race and gender in the media
The College of Business will host a session today focusing on the representations of race and gender in mainstream media.
