The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 1 • Aug. 28, 2012  


Campus Champion

T-shirt design requires the perfect blend of artistic ability and creativity. It’s safe to say Alycia Barbieri, a junior professional writing and art major, excels at it. In April, her charcoal drawing of a kind-faced sun drying clothes on a line took home first place in an Earth Week 2012 contest sponsored by college laundry vendor Mac-Gray Corporation. Last fall, she submitted the winning t-shirt design for the Cortaca Jug football game. This campus champion will be recognized at a special event put on by Auxiliary Services Corporation and Mac-Gray, scheduled for 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, on the Corey Union steps, and 500 t-shirts with her winning design will be distributed.
