School shootings: Taking steps to create safer schools

As a parent there is nothing more precious to me than my children. I would do anything and everything I could to safeguard them.

Times have definitely changed from when I was a student. Columbine forever changed our reality when it comes to school safety.  Since then, school violence has become all too prevalent. We are a little more than a year removed from the horrific school shooting in Newtown, and more recently, there was a school shooting in New Mexico. In Connecticut, several colleges have gone into lockdown in the past year due to reported threats on campus. All of these incidents have left people wondering what could be done to stop this from happening again.

I don’t think we can totally prevent school shootings, but I do think there are steps we can take to ensure they are less likely to occur.

Calling all artists! Post University wants YOU to design its 125th Anniversary celebration logo

It’s time to get your creative juices flowing, and help Post University prepare for its 125th Anniversary!

Founded in 1890, Post will begin a year-long countdown to its Quasquicentennial this April, in anticipation of an April 2015 celebration of the school’s founding in Waterbury.  And we’d like a logo commemorating that milestone, to be used alongside our “Post Tree” logo as we promote anniversary events.

That’s where you come in!
