Help Falk College Raise Awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month
Falk College is currently raising awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month and the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Site. Falk College Ambassadors and peer advisors planted a pinwheel garden on campus on April 9 and will be selling blue rubber wristbands for $1 each in support of Child Abuse Prevention Month, as well as soliciting donations for paper pinwheels, which also are $1 each. The bracelets will be available in the Schine Student Center from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on April 12-13, and in the the Falk Complex (second floor, near room 229) on April 14-15 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
The Falk Ambassadors assist its Admissions Office staff with important recruitment activities during the year. Ambassadors provide assistance at all Falk College open houses, give tours of the facilities and provide the student prospective at special events throughout the year. Falk College peer advisors help incoming freshmen and transfer students understand and transition into college life. Peer advisors also assist the Falk College Student Services Office in a variety of other ways, including involvement in meetings and activities during Syracuse Welcome-New Student Orientation, giving small group campus tours and helping with schedule adjustments.
The McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Site is a Syracuse-based nonprofit organization dedicated to ending child abuse through intervention and education. Since opening in 2002, McMahon/Ryan has helped thousands of abused children and their family members, assisting and advocating for more than 400 abused children annually.
