The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 2 • Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012  


Campus Champion

When you look at the lighter side of SUNY Cortland – through the creative videos posted on SUNYCortlandTV, the College’s YouTube page – you start to scratch the surface of Ryan Walker’s talents. The junior physical education major is a high-energy champion who is the College’s first male president of the Gymnastics Club, a trickster on his snowboard and an academic success story. But it’s his talents as a videographer (his credits include the “Call Me OA” parody and New York Jets training camp footage) that currently have momentum.
