The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 21 • July 17, 2012  


Campus Champion

Boyan Cox tries to get the most out of her college experience and is committed to helping others do the same. The sophomore education major and part-time kettlebell instructor just returned from Colorado, where she was a delegate at the National Association for College and University Residence Halls Conference. Now she’s living on campus as a student house counselor for the summer Education Opportunities Program (EOP), and this fall she will be a resident assistant (RA) in Randall Hall. “I am passionate about Residence Life,” said Cox. She’d better be. When the EOP program concludes in August, this fitness buff will have a day’s rest before starting RA training.

Capture the Moment


Small group activities were one way to get new students comfortable with each other and with college life during SUNY Cortland’s first-year orientation sessions, held between the last week of June and mid-July. About 1,100 first-year students attended the two-day sessions, where they met other new students, faculty and staff members, registered for fall classes and learned about campus life and college resources.
