Student organizations collaborated on a street festival as the culmination of Step Beyond Week, an annual effort that sent students out to volunteer in the Poughkeepsie community. Participants in the festival included the Ebony Theatre Ensemble, the Pro-Choice Coalition, the Jewish Student Union and Lathrop House. Assistant to the President Robert Pounder, professor of classics, observed that the festival and Step Beyond Week would help the college play a more prominent role in the community and strengthen its ties with Poughkeepsie residents.  All proceeds from the Street Festival went to the United Way.      The Miscellany News
