cannot afford a meal. “Some students may be able to eat breakfast, but they might not have money for lunch,” say Terry. Needy students and staff on the campus benefit from The Pantry. The Pantry is located in the High Tech Building on the third floor, next to room 300. The hours of opera- tion are: Monday-Friday 7 a m to 10 p m, and Saturday 8 a m to 3 p m. It is not open on holidays. ( Cont’d on page 2 ) By Kindra Lloyd and staff The Rockville campus is challenging the German- town campus to a food drive to see which campus can collect the most non- perishable food items by November 18. Donation boxes are located in the Stu- dent Life Office (SA 186). The donations will be divided amongst Manna Food Bank , the German- town Campus Food Pantry, and the YMCA. Suggested food items include: soup, pudding , instant oatmeal, juice boxes, tuna, canned meats, protein bars, crack- ers, baby food, rice, pasta, dried and canned beans, granola bars, boxed mashed potatoes, canned and dried fruit, powdered milk, pow- dered eggs, and packaged dinner mixes. (Nothing re- quiring refrigeration.) Financial uncertainty is an issue for some students and staff members. In or- der to address the problem, the College created The Pantry. Professor Ellen Terry organized the food pantry to help students who New national rules affecting athletics will cause a major change in Montgomery College teams in the coming year. To ex- plain the new require- ments, Student Life will host a Q&A forum with stu- dents on Thurs., Nov. 17 at 4 p.m. in SA121 to discuss the future of athletics on the Germantown campus . Under new rules pub- lished by the National Jun- ior College Athletic Associa- tion (NJCAA), community college athletes are not allowed to cross campuses at a multi-campus institu- tion. This is contrary to MC’s current flexibility in academics and athletics. Over the years, MC has developed separate athletic programs on each campus. Duplicate pro- grams now exist in both baseball and basketball. These multiple teams pro- mote lively campus-to- campus rivalry and provide greater opportunities for students to play. And of course, many students take courses at one campus and cross to another campus to compete. The new NJCAA restric- tions would require the Col- lege to add women’s teams to each campus in light of Title IX federal require- ments that require some parity in gender sports. Therefore, in an effort to remain equitable and flexi- ble for students, MC will take a college-wide ap- proach that will allow stu- dents to play sports on any campus, and only one team will be available for each sport. For example, in 2012- 2013 season, MC will have one men’s team and one women’s team. Students at all campuses will be eligi- ble to participate.
