Searching for solutions


The Oct. 17 campus/community session of the Public Issues Forums of Centre County dealt with dangerous drinking and was attended by more than 100 people interested in addressing the possibilities for demanding citizen responsibility, treating the public health epidemic and educating for societal change. The event was presented in the HUB-Robeson Center on the University Park campus by State College Area School District Community Education in association with the Centre Daily Times. Above, Bill Asbury, left, vice president for student affairs, was seated with Isaiah J. Poole, opinion page editor of the Centre Daily Times, at the start of the forum. Below, participants were shown a video on drinking before they broke into smaller groups for discussions. Bottom photo, Suzanna Kerlin, chair of the steering committee for the Centre County Public Issues Forum, registers student Kate Yanuzzi for the discussion.
