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 group’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 year’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.

Speaker Monica Collins from the Office of Women’s Programs and Studies will headline the interactive event. She will show the audience how TV and print media entities “utilize and perpetuate racial and gender stereotypes” in society, according to a press
release on the session.

She will also ask the audience to find ways to increase awareness and decrease the presence of this issue. Collins will speak at 4:15 p.m. in Rockwell Hall room 139.

The event, which lasts until 7:30 p.m., will be in the Lory Student Center Main Ballroom and host numerous federal agencies to talk about career opportunities.
