Some 1,000 folks congregated in Lusk Field House from late Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday morning to participate in the Relay for Life. Organized for a second year by SUNY Cortland junior Marie Bieber, a psychology major from Conklin, N.Y., along with a dozen of her Colleges Against Cancer Club members, the event included bands, dance performances and food sales. Tens of thousands of dollars were raised for the American Cancer Society by a campus and a community that came together not only to remember loved ones lost to the disease, like Marie's late aunt, Siegrid Borner, but to demonstrate their conviction to finding a cure.

Capture the Moment
As part of the campus Veterans Day ceremony Nov. 10 in Old Main, SUNY Cortland ROTC cadet Todd Staiger, pictured on the left, and SUNY Cortland alumnus Maj. Richard Brown, an instructor in the Cornell ROTC Program, addressed a gathering in Brown Auditorium. Afterward, the two placed a wreath in the Miller Building lobby in front of the plaque donated to the College in 1977 by alumni who had fought in World War II. "We shall never forget the encouragement and inspiration we received from our alma mater," wrote the veterans. In turn, SUNY Cortland has never forgotten the sacrifices they made on behalf of their country.
