Five SUNY Geneseo alumni artists are scheduled to perform this week during the Geneseo Dance Ensemble’s “Dancing Past to Present: Celebrating 45 Years.”
Rosemary Cardamone Crane, a SUNY Oswego alumna who has built a career in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, will join in recognizing more than 100 academic achievers at the college this week.
Zeigler, who curates the Apollo moon samples, spoke with students about the importance of the missions in an event titled “What We Have Learned Since the Apollo Missions”. He brought with him moon samples from the collection, some of which were billions of years old.
“We haven’t been there in about 40 years. Our understanding of the moon has evolved a lot since then, so I think going back to the moon would be a very important step as NASA goes out into the solar system to explore again,” Zeigler said.
Zeigler also noted to YNN that it is important to note humans’ technology abilities when we went to the moon. For example, we hold in our hand today more computing power in smartphones and tablets than the entire NASA rocket was capable of when we were making trips to the moon.
SUNY has an extensive relationship through alumni, students, and joint projects with NASA. Zeigler’s trip to the North Country last week was one of many outreach efforts that our supportive alumni embark on every day.
As the nation gears up to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, SUNY is once again recognized for its outstanding commitment to environmental conservation. The Princeton Review, in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), this week salutes eight SUNY campuses among the 230 most environmentally responsible “green colleges” in the United States and Canada.
“SUNY’s commitment to an energy-smart New York and to sustainability throughout our system is a critical component of our strategic plan, one that our campuses have widely embraced and consistently shown leadership on,” said SUNY Chancellor Zimpher. “Congratulations to the eight SUNY campuses listed in the 2013 Guide to Green Colleges. This recognition is much deserved and highly commendable.”
The eight campuses named show due diligence in their environmental efforts day after day: Continue reading →
When I visited SUNY Oswego as a prospective student, it was one of my first times heading out to Western New York. It was mid-October and I had to wake up especially early to make the nearly three-hour drive in order to arrive at the College by 9 a.m. for my tour of the beautiful campus. But what did not wake me up was coffee or donuts from the Tim Horton’s between exits 28 and 29; it was the snow!
As soon as we passed Utica, it began to snow. And snow. And snow some more. Needless to say, when we arrived at SUNY Oswego, the city was completely covered in snow. It was almost as if I was in my own world though, because every single person in Oswego functioned as if this happened every day. (Does it?)
SUNY Mascot Madness is all about SUNY engagement; students, fans, alumni, and community members rally together to boost their favorite SUNY mascot up. But what’s the reasoning behind two hundred thousand votes cast in 2013?
As we approach the end of this year’s competition (which you still have some time to vote in if you haven’t already), we compiled the best mascot quotes from their profiles to explore the differences in personalities between the mascots. After all, who would have otherwise known that some North Country mascots have a longing to meet? Or how each of the 30 mascots joined their SUNY campus? Just like SUNY students, our mascots are diverse, energetic, and passionate!
With St. Patrick’s Day recently passing, Irish eyes were smiling while looking at opportunities within SUNY. Several SUNY schools offer a very unique array of study abroad opportunities with nearly 600 programs in more than 50 countries. Ireland is among those countries where students could study for as long as one semester or academic year, or have a short-term experience during the winter or summer. Internships, volunteer and service learning opportunities are also available in Ireland. Each program ensures an unforgettable experience for students.
We’ve gathered some basic information on a few of the many opportunities offered by SUNY campuses to study abroad, here specifically in Ireland. Read below to learn a little about them, and visit the campus website to find additional information.
