SUNY Cortland to Go Red Friday

 SUNY Cortland to Go Red Friday

08/27/2013 

It’s no secret that SUNY Cortland boasts one of the proudest fan bases in the country.

Now, it’s time to prove it.

SUNY Cortland will celebrate College Colors Day on Friday, Aug. 30, by turning its campus red with a variety of spirited activities.

All students, faculty and staff members are invited to put their Red Dragon pride on full display by sporting their favorite 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 garb and sharing them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #CortlandPride. The most spirited photo submitted by a graduate to the Alumni Affairs Office email account will earn a pair of tickets to this year’s Cortaca Jug game, which will be played Nov. 16 at Ithaca College’s Butterfield Stadium.

The contest includes creative students, staff, faculty and alumni who visit the SUNY Cortland exhibit at the New York State Fair that day and receive a pair of Red Dragon sunglasses.

All members of the campus community will be winners in the form of a free ice cream social from 1 to 3 p.m. in Corey Union.

Other activities planned for the day include a canned food drive organized by SUNY Cortland’s Institute for Civic Engagement, raffle giveaways and a banner signing outside of Corey Union that will give campus community members an opportunity to write down what they love about SUNY Cortland.

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

To stay up to speed with the College Colors Day buzz, join SUNY Cortland’s Facebook event or visit cortland.edu/red.
