SUNY New Paltz announced in May a new program — and venture — into Digital Design and Fabrication at the College in way of 3D printing. The commercialized aspect, appropriately named Hudson Valley 3D Printing, will continue to seek investment and work directly with the state’s first certificate program in 3D Printing at SUNY New Paltz.
“This is what they do in Silicon Valley. This is what they do in Cambridge,” Laurence Gottlieb, President and CEO for the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation, told YNN.
Earth Day is a perfect opportunity to recognize the role that SUNY plays in maximizing Energy Smart New York every single day of the year; after all, 97% of the state’s population is within 20 miles of a SUNY campus. As an economic driver in New York State, SUNY capitalizes on the opportunity to profoundly affect New Yorkers by instating smart, and sometimes bold, environmental goals.
Today we focus on a recent national intercampus achievement and groundbreaking systemwide initiative that both focus on the environment. And to kick off our highlighting of SUNY’s eco-friendly push, our Generation SUNY team spoke to SUNY ESF faculty expert Dr. Elizabeth Folta on how SUNY students can maximize (or minimize!) their impact throughout the year with our brand-new video series, Interview With A. Check it out after the jump!
Was college everything you wanted or expected it to be? My years at college flew by and it’s hard for me to believe that graduation is only a month away. Samantha, Generation SUNY intern, asked if I accomplished everything I wanted to during college. ”Have you eaten enough ramen noodles to be considered a stereotypical college student or walked on the UAlbany podium so that the steps equate to seconds standing in a wind tunnel?”
To answer this question–what, really, should every undergraduate student at SUNY do while an undergrad–we set out to compile a list of “must-do’s”. The list topics are pretty open-ended so that each may be accomplished during any semester at college. Do you agree with what we have? Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments!
So, for all those who are graduating this year and those who see it approaching in the coming years… we present The Undergraduates’ Bucket List! Continue reading →
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 →
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!
