Campus Champion

Being engaged, productive and a part of the bigger picture are goals that Kenia Ozoria, sophomore communication studies major from Union City, N.J., sets for herself. Actively involved in the College’s Leadership House, and an employee for the campus printing and PC services, she is ready to do more. Inspired by the documentary “400 Years Without a Comb,” Kenia will lead a positive campus discussion on black hair as it has been understood throughout history. One of several Black History Month Sandwich Seminars, “Questioning Black Hair: Culture, Self-Image and Politics,” will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 18, in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.

When the College’s wrestling team competed in Moffett Gymnasium on Jan. 29 and 30, it marked the first time in 35 years that an intercollegiate athletics event was held in the building. Moffett Center’s gymnasium and pool previously hosted SUNY Cortland’s varsity teams before Park Center opened in 1973. The nationally sixth-ranked Red Dragons won both of their matches and currently sit 12-2 headed into their final dual match-up of the season Wednesday at Ithaca College.
