Sixteen SUNY Oneonta students spent part of their spring break at the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City. More than 3,000 students representing 150-plus colleges and universities from almost 30 countries participated in the conference from March 24-28.
This year’s delegation, representing Croatia, was one of 29 groups from around the world selected to receive the Distinguished Delegation award at the end of the five-day conference. This is a high honor, placing the Oneonta delegation in the top 10 percent of participants. In addition, Oneonta students Vanessa Griffith, Cady Kuzmich and Marybeth Carswell were recognized for writing the best position papers in their respective committees.
