World AIDS Day, observed each year on December 1, calls attention to the fact that AIDS continues to be a rapidly expanding epidemic for which there is as yet no known cure. On the Bluffton campus a number of events will be offered to mark World AIDS day. The microbiology students in Dr. Breen's class will provide a display in the Science Building lobby on the science of AIDS and the search for a vaccine. Dr. Thompson's History 102 class will create a display in Hargray lobby telling the story of AIDS in two dozen nations where the epidemic is rampant. Access Network will bring their traveling display on HIV/AIDS in the Lowcountry to contribute to the Hargray exhibit. The Library will offer a book display on the theme. Red ribbons for all and a self-quiz testing your knowledge of AIDS in South Carolina will be provided at no charge in front of the bookstore. To close the day, there will be a showing of the movie "And The Band Plays On" at 8 pm. There will be souvenir freebie gifts provided by Access Network with phone numbers for free counseling and free, confidential, painless HIV testing available upon request.
