College to Go Red for Colors Day

College to Go Red for Colors Day

08/27/2014 

It’s no secret that SUNY Cortland boasts one of the proudest fan bases in the country, a cheering section made up of students, alumni and Red Dragon fans near and far.

This week, it’s time to prove it yet again.

SUNY Cortland will celebrate its own version of College Colors Day on Friday, Aug. 29, with Red Dragon Pride Day. All students, faculty and staff members are invited to put their school spirit on full display by sporting their favorite red Cortland gear and joining a campus photo at 1:40 p.m. on the steps of Corey Union.

Alumni, parents and local community residents can join the fun too by snapping their own photos in SUNY Cortland apparel and sharing them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #CortlandPride. The most spirited photo submissions could even win prizes from the College’s Alumni Engagement Office.

Departments across campus and local businesses also are invited to share their own photos Friday morning.

All members of the campus community will be winners in the form of a free ice cream social from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday in Corey Union, sponsored by the College’s Alumni Engagement Office. SUNY Cortland’s Institute for Civic Engagement also will be present to hand out free giveaways and register new voters for Election Day.

The College Store will get in on the action too, offering a 20 percent discount on all red apparel in store Thursday, Aug. 28, and Friday, Aug. 29. Alumni, parents and fans of the College also will receive a 20 percent discount online for red apparel. They should enter the word “alumni” in the coupon box when ordering to receive the discount. 

To stay up to speed with Red Dragon Pride Day buzz, join SUNY Cortland’s Facebook event or visit reddragonnetwork.org/red.
