“Painting the wall” is a longstanding tradition for students at SUNY Oneonta and neighboring Hartwick College. Throughout the year, students take turns painting the concrete wall on West Street, just below the Hartwick campus and a few blocks from the main SUNY Oneonta campus entrance, to advertise campus and community events. An enthusiastic group of SUNY Oneonta seniors painted the wall Thursday morning in celebration of the college’s 124th commencement, to be held on Saturday, May 18.

Student participants at the STEM You Can! Video Contest Awards Gala
On April 30th the STEM You Can! Video Contest Awards Gala was held at the Rochester Museum & Science Center.
Eight teams of students from area schools were recognized for outstanding videos highlighting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Students from elementary, middle, and high school all submitted short videos illustrating concepts such as robotics, electricity, and the weight of electricity.
All of the youth who participated were from grades 3 to 12 in the Finger Lakes region. The students worked individually or in teams with two or three other students, plus an adult mentor or adviser, to create three-minute videos that explored STEM topics and their impact in our world today.

The Beekman Boys from the Cooking Channel and the Amazing Race pose for a picture with SUNY Delhi students
When Dr. David Brower, Hospitality Management Department Chair at SUNY Delhi, asked the Fabulous Beekman Boys of Cooking Channel and The Amazing Race fame to impart their entrepreneurial wisdom to Delhi students, they quickly said yes.
Dr. Brower whipped off an email on a Sunday night inviting Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge (The Beekman Boys) to the Delhi campus. He thought, “it couldn’t hurt,” and within the hour the Beekman Boys accepted the invitation.
