Numerous partners from across Upstate New York came together to make this possible. More than thirty different sponsors provided funds, volunteers, and a passion for science. Sponsors included private businesses such as Corning Incorporated, community organizations such as the Syracuse Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and institutions of higher education, including Onondaga Community College. With so many sponsors working together to serve New York’s student scientists, the fair is a prime example of harnessing the power of partnerships!
Ten SUNY campuses’ graduate programs are named among the nation’s top graduate programs for 2014, according to U.S. World and News Report. The rankings, released in March, highlight over 75 tracks at the ten campuses in each subject’s top 100; many other SUNY schools are recognized in the full report.
According to U.S. News, the rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students. The data come from surveys of administrators at more than 1,250 programs and more than 13,000 academics and professionals conducted during the fall of 2012 and early 2013.
“We are thrilled to see SUNY colleges and universities once again ranked among the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report,” said State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “The SUNY campuses to make the 2014 Best Graduate Schools list are consistently recognized for the top quality and top value that they offer students, and rightly so. Congratulations to our many campuses and their respective presidents and educators on this much deserved recognition.”

Today is the midpoint of Mascot Madness Round 1, so we decided to explore how our multi-talented creatures (and plants) keep busy during the year! Whether it’s pumping up the crowd at a game, helping the students on campus, or offering their services to help out the local community, the SUNY Mascots are a dedicated – and quite busy – bunch. Take a look at some videos we found of the mascots in action.
And don’t forget, if you haven’t voted in SUNY Mascot Madness Round 1 yet, you have until Sunday night to do so. Round 2 begins Tuesday at noon!
If we missed any videos of our mascots in action, post it in the comments or let us know on Facebook/Twitter!
