The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 3 • Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014  


Campus Champion

The voice leading the chants at last week’s Take Back the Night sexual assault awareness march belongs to Residence Hall Director Lima Stafford ’12. A natural leader, the Grenada native and student mentor has a passion for successfully encouraging first-year students to stick around campus and get involved. She guides her staff to develop programs that help students find their interests among the dozens of student organizations at SUNY Cortland. Two that are dear to Lima as co-advisor are MOVE: Men of Value and Excellence and the Caribbean Student Association. Both are recruiting now for their big fall fundraiser events.

Meagan Jean, a senior from Buffalo, N.Y., makes the tug of war game held outside Memorial Library last Thursday look like fun, which was the goal of Childhood/Early Childhood Education Associate Professor Lin Lin. Students in her Academic and Social Curriculum II class learned that teaching about the 1700s can be fun and engaging in 2014 in this lesson about how the Continental Army won the Revolutionary War. The tug of war participants will head into classrooms next semester as student teachers, taking with them the lessons that historical thinking can be learned from multiple perspectives.
