“Rhonda Jacobs’ passion and guardianship of the history and future of the Outdoor Education Program is truly her greatest strength,” wrote a colleague. The Center for Environmental and Outdoor Education assistant director is deeply rooted in the Raquette Lake Facilities – first as a recreation student visiting Huntington Camp in 2000, as an intern in 2001, working at Kirby Camp in 2002, and since 2003, managing programs at Antlers. Her ability to think outside the box has resulted in new education programs for the College and other educators, who have discovered that Antlers is a great place to build community and create bonds while connecting with the outdoors.

Among their many responsibilities, SUNY Cortland's student orientation assistants are trusted to act out scenarios that first-year students could face when they acclimate to college life. The orientation crew offered faculty and staff members a first look at its comical short skits during a June preview in the Corey Union Function Room then performed them at the different Orientation sessions, which began in late June and wrap up in mid-July.
