Wanted: name for new trolley

Posted on Oct 29, 1999

The trolley that will serve as the new campus

shuttle needs a name.

The 24-passenger vehicle will be parked starting Monday

in front of Reamer Campus Center, where students may submit nominations to

name the vehicle.

Entries are to be forwarded to the Student Forum for

selection with the winner to be announced at the end of the week. The

winning entry will receive prizes including a TV and credit toward their

declining balance account donated by Dining Services.

Robert Tomeck, campus safety supervisor, has coordinated

the acquisition of the trolley. A number of members of the Facilities

Services staff contributed to the restoration of the vehicle, he said. The

trolley had been used most recently for tours of Cleveland's waterfront.

Trolley hours will be 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., Sunday through

Thursday; and 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. Friday and Saturday. The route plan may

include stops at neighboring businesses during the shuttle hours, Tomeck

said, and the schedule may be expanded to include trips to area shopping


The trolley also may be used for a variety of campus

functions such as admissions and alumni tours, Tomeck said. Trustees last

week used the newly refurbished vehicle to tour the College Park

neighborhood where the College has begun the Union-Schenectady Initiative.

MS to benefit from shorthanded play

Posted on Oct 29, 1999

This season, when a hockey player takes a seat in

the penalty box, it's for a good cause.

Every minute a Union hockey player spends in the penalty

box means more money for the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.

Alpha Epsilon Pi is hoping to raise more than $1,500

from pledges and donations to its “Pennies for Penalty Minutes”


Last season, the Dutchmen spent over 600 minutes in the

penalty box.

Signups are at tables in the Reamer Campus Center or by

contacting Joe Ehrlich '01 at ext. 5696 or at ehrlichj@union.edu.
