It’s hard to believe now, but scorching temperatures and New York Jets Training Camp preparations will eventually give way to milder weather and the start of fall semester classes.
And when that happens, SUNY Cortland will treat its employees to a fall tailgate event open to all faculty and staff members.
Fall Festival, an afternoon offering free food and entertainment, takes place Saturday, Sept. 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. inside the College’s Park Center Alumni Arena and in a nearby parking lot, if weather permits. It’s a way to catch up with friends on campus and make introductions to new ones.
Employees are invited to bring their families and guests. Catered food will be provided and entertainment, including music and bounce houses, will be supplied with all ages in mind.
The event, funded by the Vice President for Finance and Management Office, is free for everyone.
Attendees will receive free entry to the SUNY Cortland football team’s season opener, which kicks off at 1 p.m. against Buffalo State, and Cortland’s field hockey game against Farmingdale at 1 p.m. There’s no obligation to attend either game.
Watch for R.S.V.P. information, which will be distributed through email and a campus mailing in August.
