Cortaca Mug Event Entertains Without Alcohol

 Cortaca Mug Event Entertains Without Alcohol

11/08/2011 

The fourth annual Cortaca Mug event returns Friday, Nov. 11, to offer SUNY Cortland students an alcohol-free party in anticipation of Saturday’s rivalry game.

The event runs from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. and takes place in the Interfaith Center adjacent to campus at 7 Calvert St. Every student who attends will receive a commemorative Cortaca coffee mug for free, compliments of the Interfaith Campus Ministry, the Campus Activities and Corey Union Office, the Residence Life and Housing Office and the Cortland County Council of Churches.

The event serves as a prelude to Saturday’s annual football game between SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College, which kicks off at noon at Butterfield Stadium in Ithaca, N.Y.

“Our rivalry in football provides an opportunity for students to celebrate in various ways,” said Mary Kate Boland, the assistant director for leadership and community development at SUNY Cortland. “Cortaca Mug has become a wonderful option for students who want to celebrate in an alcohol-free setting.”

Student attendance at the event has increased each year since it began in 2008. Live music, free food and prize giveaways highlight the late-night activities.

This year, the SUNY Cortland Rock & Blues Ensemble will play at 9 p.m. Card tables will replace the Interfaith Center’s pews and community members will lead various activities. Free pizza and drinks, which include soda and coffee, make up the evening’s menu.

The biggest draw, however, might be the event’s giveaways. Raffle prizes, donated from groups across campus, have ranged from SUNY Cortland hats and t-shirts to an Apple iPad and various gift certificates. Last year, more than 40 students walked away with prizes.

“We plan on this year’s event being better than ever,” Boland said.
