JAILED FOR A GOOD CAUSE
June 02, 2010
ALLIANCE, Ohio - On Wednesday, April 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. faculty, staff and students at Mount Union College may find themselves "jailed" in the Main Lounge of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
Held by Dr. Steve Kramer, professor and chair of the psychology department and his Social Responsibility class, "Jail n' Bail" is a fund raising activity that attempts to raise money to pay for some of the expenses incurred during their spring break work trip to Mexico.
Throughout the afternoon, members of the campus community can pay $1 to have someone jailed for a short period of time. Individuals can either prevent being jailed completely by paying $2, or if jailed, can carry out the duration of their sentence or pay $1 to be bailed out. In addition, those who are jailed can pay $1 to find out who had them jailed.
While in Mexico, Kramer and his class spent much of the week working on the construction of a roof and staircase for a parsonage and the painting of a building.
