The holidays remind us this is the season of giving. All members of SUNY make a concerted effort to volunteer and contribute to their respective campuses and local communities. The 30 Days of Giving campaign highlights students and faculty across all of our 64 campuses who participate in volunteerism and give back to those in need. With over 467,000 students and three million alumni, we want to celebrate the impact the SUNY community has made in all of their unique community service projects. As we learned last year, the byproduct of taking volunteerism to scale is not only building character in our students themselves as they join our over three million alumni, but also to set an example of impact as the nation’s largest university system.

All over New York State, SUNY athletics play a significant role in each one of our 64 state wide campuses. SUNY athletics range from NJCAA and Division III all the way up to Division I. Not only are school athletics important for the obvious reason of competition, but they are also important in creating and building strong school pride and community spirit. Being a part of such a program is not something to be overlooked and being apart of SUNY creates that feeling of fulfillment.
Whether it be Division III or Division I, no accomplishment goes without recognition. These student athletes put forth extreme dedication to not only sports, but schoolwork as well. SUNY athletic programs have flourished through their histories and will continue to strive for excellence.
Lets take a look at a couple SUNY athletic programs to look forward to this fall!
