True! Mercer is "Glowing Red" for Heart Health in February
Notice a red glow at the entrances to the West Windsor campus
in the evening? MCCC joins with 30 New Jersey institutions, including
Drumthwacket, the official governor's residence in Princeton, for the
American Heart Association's "Glow Red Campaign" in February.
According to Amy Iseneker, who chairs the MCCC effort, the month-long
observance is "all about awareness. People should know the symptoms
of heart disease, which are different for men and women." Throughout
the month, red lighting will greet visitors at both campus entrances and
also illuminate the MCCC Conference Center. See photos here.
Feb. 6, MCCC employees are encouraged to wear red to support the American
Heart Association's fight against heart disease, especially among women.
Red dress pins are available for a small donation. (E-mail email@example.com
or call ext. 3372.) Women are encouraged to complete a personal heart
health assessment by visiting www.goredforwomen.org
and clicking on: Go Red Heart CheckUp.

Basketball Coach Mike Tenaglia Notches 300th Win

basketball on Jan. 31 in a home game against Salem Community College,
which the Mercer women won 78-57. With the win, the Lady Vikes' record
for the season stands at 16-8.

life, not their whole life." More here.
