Jets Training Camp in Cortland Postponed

The New York Jets on June 24 notified SUNY Cortland officials that the team will not hold summer training camp at SUNY Cortland this year because of logistical complications and time constraints caused by ongoing contract negotiations between National Football League owners and players.

The Jets will hold the team’s 2011 camp at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, N.J., but will return to SUNY Cortland in 2012 and 2013. The College’s agreement with the Jets includes a renewal clause for potentially two more years after that. Read more...

Campus Champion

Christopher Tucker, the College’s property services manager, seemingly tracks every last thing on campus. For the last two years, he also tracked people. As SUNY Cortland’s team leader in the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge – a workforce health initiative held in dozens of cities – he and five colleagues coordinated the logistics of t-shirt choice, bus shuttle, hospitality tent and race registration for 89 coworkers running in the June 21 event in Syracuse. “When I first started training for the 2007 Corporate Challenge, I never thought I would, or even could, run a marathon,” Tucker said. In November, he will run his fifth, the ING New York City Marathon.
