After registration, we will still be tabling to help people fill out absentee ballot request forms. However, first you must register, so don’t waste any time and come out and register!

However, we understand that not everyone who wants to register or request an absentee ballot can be there during the noon hour, so there is another option! Just email me, Jseidman@Ithaca.edu, and I will send you the appropriate form for whatever state you plan to vote in. Political engagement is so critical, and we hope you all come to register! If you have any questions, comments, concerns, just email me!

Pop-Up Pubs are back!

Don’t miss the fun at the first Pop-Up Pub of the year! Join us this Thursday, September 13th, from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. in the Dillingham Lobby. There will be complimentary hors-d’oeuvres and infused waters as well as an array of local wines, beer, and sodas available for purchase.

The pop-ups were introduced last year as one of President Collado’s Seed Grant Initiatives. They have a simple but important purpose: to offer unstructured opportunities to get to know one another outside our normal routines and deepen our sense of community and connection. This month’s pub will be co-hosted by HSHP, Finance and Administration, and the various HSHP student organizations.

There is no formal program—just a chance to meet up with one another without leaving campus. So come enjoy some good food and drinks with friends, old and new. If you can’t make it to this one, keep an eye out for next month’s.

Guests over the age of 21 will be required to provide ID to purchase alcoholic beverages. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.
