The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 2 • Sept. 14, 2009  


Campus Champion

During the summer months, more than 1,760 freshmen and transfer students, along with an estimated 1,700 guests, converged on the Cortland campus for summer orien-tation. Under the coordination of Abby Thomas and the Advisement and Transition Office, these students experienced an array of programs across campus, met with faculty, registered for fall classes and made their first face-to-face connections with their new Cortland peers. Abby and her team, working with some 230 faculty, professionals and student leaders, made these all-important visits to SUNY Cortland both enjoyable and educational for the College's newest students and their families.
