Oberlin SAAC's Busy Winter

November and December were busy months for Oberlin’s SAAC as the student athletes contributed to a number of proactive causes.

In the month of November, or rather, Movember, Oberlin's men’s cross country team let their mustaches grow wild and raised $2,456 dollars for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. The fundraising effort was captained by Oberlin senior Kiron Roy. In addtion, the athletics department staff raised $399, bringing Oberlin’s total contribution to $2,855.

During the reading period leading up to finals week Oberlin’s SAAC group held a Study Break session in the college’s Science Center. From 6-10 p.m. members of Oberlin’s SAAC helped student’s relieve stress by playing games (corn hole, bowling with plastic pins, jump ropes, hula hoops) offered healthy snacks (apples and bananas) and informed the student body about what SAAC is all about!

Finally, SAAC helped organize a food drive and below are pictures from our efforts. Happy Holidays!
