Dear Cortland students:
Halloween normally brings fun and festive celebrations to campus.
While I hope you are able to enjoy the holiday this weekend, I do urge you to do so safely, both for your classmates and the Cortland community at large. Halloween comes at a very important juncture in the semester while we are effectively slowing the spread of COVID-19.
You will have opportunities to stay engaged and enjoy the season. For example:
I encourage you to be creative and use the technology at your disposal to get together with friends, watch scary movies and compare costumes. Please remember to practice physical distancing and wear a face covering if you are around someone from outside your residence.
I know this Halloween will be very different for you, but your continued commitment this weekend will help SUNY Cortland move forward.
I sincerely thank you for the sacrifices you have made and continue to make during this semester. Please be smart and be safe.
All the best,
Erik J. Bitterbaum
