 Campus Plans May 6 'Hand in Hand' Walk

04/28/2014 

Tickets are still available for members of the campus community who wish to celebrate SUNY Cortland’s success to sign up for the “Hand in Hand” walk and barbecue lunch on Tuesday, May 6.

This first-time event will serve to mark the College’s singular achievements, which thrive because of the collaborative efforts of students, faculty, administration and community members to make the campus community special.

So far, at least 100 campus faculty, staff and students have signed up to participate, according to organizers.

Sign up now is extended until the day of the event and tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, email UUP@cortland.edu and an electronic ticket will be issued for each participant to print out and bring with them to the barbecue.

This walk for fellowship is sponsored by the Student Government Association and SUNY Cortland administration as well as United University Professions, Civil Service Employees Association, Police Benevolent Association and the New York Public Interest Research Group.

On May 6, College community members who have signed up in advance for the event will walk hand-in-hand starting at 11:30 a.m. from the bus stop on Graham Avenue or from the corner of Pashley Drive and Broadway Avenue in front of Whitaker Hall and through campus to the Corey Union steps.

There, speakers will share remarks and the barbecue will follow. The rain location is the Corey Union Exhibition Lounge.

For more information, contact the UUP Office at UUP@cortland.edu or 607-753-5991.
