Who’s your favorite SUNY musical artist?
We are excited to announce Generation SUNY’s first-ever music contest called Music Madness! After all, we all love music and what better opportunity to showcase the best talent SUNY has to offer than through an interactive competition!?
Here’s the rundown: this is a music competition (obviously) that will accept student submissions from all over New York State’s 64 SUNY campuses. For the record, that’s nearly a half-million students. There are biology, political science, psychology, and a thousand other concentrations that students may study during the day, but jump back to a core musical talent in the off-hours; let’s show off!
What comes to your mind when you think about Halloween? Perhaps costumes, candy, pumpkins, and squash? What about ghosts, goblins, and ghouls!?
In the spirit of Halloween, we have compiled bizarre, creepy, and just plain weird facts about different locations and alleged mysteries around New York. Some are completely outrageous while others are a little quirky — but all show the deep character and diversity that is New York State. And if you notice that I left any out of this list, please share in the comments or connect with SUNY on Facebook and Twitter!
And because at least one of SUNY’s 64 campuses are within 30 miles of nearly every single New Yorker, we present to you… an eerie exploration of New York’s hidden stories!
The 2013 convening of the Critical Issues in Higher Education conference series comes to a conclusion today. This year’s topic was Building a Smarter University: Big Data, Innovation and Ingenuity. Conference attendees in New York City were able to discuss and participate in sessions that looked into improving the student learning experience, enhancing the research enterprise, supporting effective community outreach, strengthening the education pipeline and advancing the university infrastructure.
As a small input into the expanding world of generated data, we’ve created a Storify that captures some of the events and interactions from this year’s conference, including Keynote Speaker Harper Reed’s speech, plenary sessions, and more in-depth discussion that helped to illustrate the use of big data to build a smarter university.
So, see how big data is transforming our world and how the conference has elevated a conversation, spurred innovative thinking, and begun to build a data-driven university!
Nineteen students and two instructors from Alfred State’s electrical construction and maintenance electrician program headed to Washington, D.C. this October to complete the largest phase of what has been a five-year project to help the U.S. National Arboretum meet its sustainability goals. Their mission: to install a 15 kilowatt photo voltaic system.
The new solar energy system is just one part of a long-term plan to update and improve the arboretum grounds while educating the public about renewable energy technology. The 446-acre facility operated by the Agriculture Research Service in Washington, D.C., is the principal intramural scientific research agency of the USDA. This particular phase will supply power to the arboretum to offset electricity costs associated with the facility’s bonsai displays.
With Halloween being a week away, it is only natural to want to be scared. Watching scary TV shows and horror movies is what Halloween time is all about! What if this trend of being scared continued you to your school?
SUNY was first established in 1816 at Potsdam, NY, but it was in February 1948 when it became a state university system. While SUNY is still relatively young, it has managed to accrue a few ghost tales in those years. Last year, we brought you some information about haunted tales at SUNY campuses.
Read on for a few additional and updated tales of supernatural happenings that have put these locations on the spooky list.
