The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 17 • Tuesday, May 13, 2014  


Campus Champion

Senior Rebecca Studin isn’t winding down in the days before Commence-ment; the Ithaca, N.Y., native is just gearing up to represent SUNY Cortland at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. The week already has been chalked up as a success for the first Red Dragon women’s golfer to qualify for the national championship, even before four-day tournament play begins. Rebecca earned the NCAA’s Elite 89 Award for women’s golf Tuesday, which goes to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade point average at each of the NCAA’s 89 championship sites. The sport management major carried a 4.08 GPA into the spring semester.
