RASO still alive despite lack of members By Danielle Marshall staff writer RASO, Returning Adult Student Organization, is currently in the process of being revitalized. The Multi-Cultural Council has created this organization, known as RASO, to include returning adult students in the Erie area. President of MCC Jennifer Fontecchio wants to keep RASO open even though there are no members, no meetings, and apparently no executive board. At present, the only person-in-charge is Don Adams. "I look at it as an opportunity with a potential to gather all adults returning to school who have unique problems with respect to returning to the academic arena, who also may have valuable experience that can translate to the younger generation," said Don Adams, 07, BLASC. Until enough members participate to elect an e-board, RASO will be at a standstill for now. It takes time and effort to successfully run or participate in any organization.
