We are probably all in a rush to finish our exams, move out, and begin our summer vacation. Before you head home for rest and relaxation, there are some things to keep in mind! So, if just for a moment, you may want to step out of the tunnel-vision of summer break and check off this quick list! If you think we missed anything, let us know in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter!
The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation annually awards approximately 200 Fellowships from between 3 – 4,000 applications. The Fellowship awards, also deemed as “midcareer awards”, are for men and women with careers and abilities in the arts, sciences, and history.
Former Guggenheim Fellows become advisers who help narrow down the competition by sending their critiques to a Committee of Selection then onto the Board of Trustees. Winners from the United States and Canada competition were announced in early April.
We are proud to have 5 current Guggenheim Fellows within the SUNY family:
The SUNY Model European Union (SUNYMEU) is an annual simulation of the European Union organized by the Institute for European Union Studies at SUNY (IEUSS), the host campus (SUNY New Paltz), and the SUNY Office of Global Affairs.
The primary purpose of SUNYMEU is to provide a framework for a simulation of a European Council meeting to better educate American students about one of the most complex and important actors in the international arena today in the European Union, while giving them an opportunity to interact with students from EU member and candidate states.
SUNY athletics play a significant part to each of our campuses. Whether it’s Division I, II, III, or intramural, each sports team is a valued addition to the SUNY community by building school pride through community interaction and student participation. Although some sports overshadow others, successes and accomplishments do not go unrecognized.
We found some big stories from the recent winter sports seasons to share with you. These are great achievements by some SUNY athletic programs that created all new stories of success and recognition. Read below to learn about some of the many accomplishments of the season.
It’s no secret that the men’s and women’s basketball teams of SUNY Albany had monumental seasons. The Danes made history as both the men and women each won America East Conference titles earning their “Chance to Dance”, the first time both teams qualified for the NCAA tournament in the same season.
The men’s team earned their spot after they defeated Vermont 53-49; the women’s team after their 61-52 victory against Hartford at Albany’s SEFCU Arena. Both teams created great stories and memories from their post-season runs.
