Campus Champion

There’s no better day to give up tobacco than the Great American SmokeOut, which takes place Thursday, Nov. 20. Make it happen by signing a pledge on Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Corey Union. For support, ask Jesse Lavalle about kicking the habit. The Health Promotion Office intern, a communication studies major who aspires to land a public relations job in the healthcare industry, is a former smoker who found the strength to quit after SUNY Cortland went tobacco free in 2013. He’s walking proof that quitting is possible. “It’s great,” Jesse says. “I don’t walk up the hill out of breath anymore.”

Capture the Moment


Wild. Improbable. Unforgettable. There are plenty of adjectives to describe SUNY Cortland’s thrilling come-from-behind win over Ithaca College in the 56th annual Cortaca Jug football game. A crowd of 8,923 witnessed the Red Dragons claim their fifth straight win in the rivalry, and millions more watched the game’s final seconds — a broken-down field goal attempt turned touchdown pass as time expired — on SportsCenter’s Top Plays. The ending received national media coverage from Bleacher Report, The Sporting News and several programs on ESPN. It capped a weekend in which students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the community worked together to take Cortaca back in the wake of last year's unruly behavior.
