Campus Champion

The College’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) measures itself in volunteer work rather than victories. That’s why secretary Taylor O’Halloran represents the best that the group offers: the sophomore women’s golf team member counts service among her many interests. Taylor, a communication studies and professional writing dual major, also plays club volleyball and writes for The Cortland Voice. And her work with SAAC is most visible. She was one of nearly 20 volunteers who raked leaves recently at several houses in the community. And this Thanksgiving, SAAC will collect $1 from each varsity student-athlete to provide a food donation worth upwards of $600 to Loaves and Fishes.
