  Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul stopped by Le Moyne College Tuesday to further the discussion about sexual assault on college campuses.  The SUNY system recently passed a progressive set of rules to advocate for students of sexual assaults and how universities within the system respond.

LeMoyne college is presenting an award-winning documentary tonight on poverty that also includes some surprises.  “What Matters?” is the story of three friends living on $1.25 a day to experience and document what it’s like living in extreme poverty.  

Director and subject Dan Parris says, “What Matters?” lacks the guilt-trip of your typical documentary on poverty.  He says it's the film's realist attitude and sense of adventure that turned the movie into a success - and, he hopes, inspires viewers to make a difference.
