Race is a big issue in the United States and the subject is often neglected in educational conversation. To help combat that lack of conversation, join us this Thursday at 6pm in the Campus Center Auditorium as Civic Engagement, Student Association, BSU, LSU, CSA, and ASO discuss Race Relations at SUNY Oswego and answer some important questions about the people who make up our campus.

Whether you’re for or against it, the Affordable Care Act is here. Wondering what is all means? Here’s some information and links we received in an email from our friends at Rock the Vote.
“We get it. The Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) is confusing, and it doesn’t help that everybody and their mother has a different opinion about it. So here are the important facts you need to know:
- Are you under 26? You can stay on your parents’ health insurance. No sweat!
- Do you have a job? Your employer might have healthcare benefits available. Check to see if this is an option.
- Are you older than 26 and do not have healthcare through work? You can now enroll at www.healthcare.gov (and at a competitive price too!).
- Opting out? Starting next year, you will have to pay a penalty for not having health insurance. The penalty starts small, but will increase gradually over the next few years.
Over 19 million Americans ages 18-34 do not have health coverage. Don’t be a statistic. Enroll today and #GetCovered.

Following Dr. Zenor, the Political Science Club will hold a panel discussion, which will be moderated by Professor Ulises Mejias, taking on topics such as the NSA Scandal, Press Intimidation, Drug Sentencing Laws, Federal and States Rights, and the role of the Supreme Court.
We hope to see you there. Any questions or comments can be directed to Civic@oswego.edu
