Dead Air on Sat 11/21 - Explanation

From approximately 5:10 to 6:15pm on Saturday Nov.21st, WHWS and its sister station, WEOS, were broadcasting dead air. The reason for this was due to non-staff user error at the transmitter site, resulting in our cross-campus fiberoptic link to lose power. We apologize for the inconvenience.

WHAT'S NEXT? A Forum on Race Relations for the HWS Community

On Tuesday Nov.3rd at 6:30pm in Albright Auditorium, a forum will be held for the Hobart & William Smith community about race relations, in light of the recent incidents involving members of the HWS community.

How can we as a community be educated and move forward to promote a healthier, safer and more inclusive environment? If you are a HWS student, faculty member or staff member, let your voice be heard. Come and contribute to the dialogue.

Please note, this is a closed forum in that it is only open to members of the HWS community.
