Meet Me In Poughkeepsie Is Rescheduled

The VSA announced yesterday that the second annual Meet Me in Poughkeepsie will now take place on October 10th instead of October 3rd. This change came after the event organizers realized that the opening of the walkway over the Hudson would make traveling through Poughkeepsie difficult.

The new date isn't without its conflicts, though, as Pete Seeger will be performing on the Chapel Lawn at 2pm. The VSA hopes to avoid conflicting with this, and says that MMiP activities won't begin until after the concert. "The FLLAC concert was designed in large part to bring community members to campus," VP for Activities Aaron Grober '11 wrote in an email to org. leaders. "Moving MMiP to 10/10 allows us to make it a community day, beginning with community members coming to Vassar for the concert, and Vassar students getting out into the community for MMiP!"

Applications for organizations to participate in MMiP are due on Thursday.
