Campus Champion

For Assistant Professor of History John Aerni-Flessner, the days of rest and relaxation have been few and far between since the spring semester's conclusion. An accomplished runner, John posted the College's top time at the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge Championship on May 21, tackling the 3.5-mile race of blazing fast professionals in 18 minutes and 57 seconds. Then, the devoted African history scholar turned around for a productive two-week research trip to the British National Archives in London, finally arriving back in Cortland on Sunday to officially kick off the summer.
