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.
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!
At each SUNY campus, large and small, the student community is tight-knit and personal. To help our universities keep this quality, there are multiple sporting events which bring students, alumni, and the community together. Whether competing as NCAA, NJCAA, NAIA, USCAA, or competitive club and intramural teams, athletics play a big role in keeping the student population involved. The high-level competition among our SUNY athletes matches the academic quality of the college experience across the state.
Read on to learn about some of the bigger events on the yearly schedules of some SUNY schools. And don’t forget, with tournament time approaching in a number of winter sports, there are some big events coming to SUNY campuses across the state soon.
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!
