Donating blood

Julie Thornton (left), director of student activities, gets a snack after giving blood during the University-wide blood drive Sept. 11. The drive was a huge success — 908 people attended and produced 690 units of blood compared with 609 units collected during the entire 2006-07 academic year. For University community members who missed the Sept. 11 event, a follow-up blood drive will be held from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 2 in the Gargoyle in the lower level of Mallinckrodt Student Center.
