For most students, summer is the season to put the books away and go to all your favorite places at home. It is a time to reconnect with old friends and visit sites you haven’t seen in a while. But the summer season is also a time to try new things and explore new places. With so much to see and do in New York, everyone needs help narrowing down their options. As we’ve done in the past (check out the 2015 list of recommendations), we’ve rounded up a series of recommendations for activities and adventures scattered throughout New York State this summer, arranged by region, that are a short hop away from a nearby SUNY campus.
Whether you have been to one of these events before or are trying something new, there’s plenty to do this summer around New York. And while you’re out, don’t forget to check out the SUNY campus nearby!
