The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 7 • Monday, Nov. 22, 2010  


Campus Champion

Perhaps what’s most remarkable about Peter Koryzno, director of public relations at SUNY Cortland since 1992, is how over the years he has nimbly sidestepped the limelight while serving as a driving force behind the prominence to which SUNY Cortland has risen. For this 2003 recipient of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Professional Service, it’s all in a day’s work and whatever accolades that brings to him personally is secondary. The 29-year employee now hopes to slip quietly into retirement. Before Koryzno returns to his native hometown of Muskegon, Mich., the entire campus community acknowledges his contributions and sends this campus champion on his way with best wishes.

Capture the Moment


The referee’s pre-game coin toss momentarily freezes the SUNY Cortland and Ithaca college football team captains, presidents and student government leaders, all awaiting the outcome of “heads or tails” and the right to kick or receive the football. More than 10,000 fans, the majority clad in red, watched the host Red Dragons come from behind to defeat Ithaca 20-17 in the 52nd Annual Cortaca Jug football classic on Nov. 13 at the Stadium Complex.
