Fall season has arrived! One of the best parts about autumn is the beautiful scenery and backdrop that the foliage provides for all of New York’s 64 SUNY campuses. Given the dispersion of all sites throughout New York, each experiences a different “intensity” of foliage throughout the fall months (look for yourself here!). And at the same time, it’s important that we nurture and protect the beautiful greenery that the environment provides us with.
SUNY’s mission–to serve New Yorkers–positions the nearly half-million students to do just that: truly value the state’s natural resources. And if you’re looking to get out this weekend, you can hike some of the Adirondack Park’s 2,000 miles of trails or find an excursion that best fits you through an interactive guide to over 100 multi-use trails in New York State!
In order to best motivate us to get out there (or just appreciate it), we put together some of the best shots of autumn foliage from around the Empire State in order to bask in the breathtaking beauty of New York!
A Morrisville Mustang is making a spectacular debut. The jaunty college icon is the theme of this year’s famed corn maze at the popular Critz Farms in Cazenovia.
Critz Farms and Morrisville State partnered to design the giant Mustang Madness Corn Maze which features more than eight acres of challenging twists. The maze opens Sept. 14 and also marks the beginning of the Critz Farms Fall Harvest Celebration which runs through Oct. 27.
On Oct. 19, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to join in the fun during Morrisville State Day at Critz Farms. Also on the agenda that day is entertainment by the Twin Magicians (for all ages) from 1-4 p.m., face painting, a Haunted Barn for Little Monsters (ages 3-11), and more.
As we head back to school this fall, there are some necessities to have! For commuters, this includes a solid lunchbox and loaded gas card. For campus residents, we need to freshen our hampers and load up on ramen noodles. But this coming semester, let’s all make sure we have something else: APPS. Whether you rely on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, let’s increase our productivity and strengthen our social bonds by checking out these ten must-have (FREE!) apps for the fall semester, as compiled by student part-time interns/full-time millennials Samantha and I.
Check out our rundown after the jump! And if you think we left any good ones out, let us know in the comments.
