S.A.V.E. fuels students after Homecoming dance

What better way to wrap up Homecoming than breakfast at midnight? As part of Students Against Violence Everywhere’s (S.A.V.E.) Keep the Knight On, students were offered pancakes in the Waldron Campus Center following the Homecoming dance on Oct. 11.

The event was funded by the Activities Programming Board. S.A.V.E. members and Metz Culinary Management workers, helped serve pancakes, coffee, water and juice to students returning from the dance or studying for midterm exams.

Daniel Gennaro, the Crime Victim Community Center partner with S.A.V.E., said Keep the Knight On was part of the club’s initiative to create a safe learning environment for students, as well as providing a place for them to encourage positive decisions.

“[This was] an effort to negate the peer pressure that comes with big weekends like Homecoming,” said Gennaro.  “We wanted to make the event more than just coming to get free food and leaving [by] giving students the alternative to still gather with friends and have a good time.”
