Campus Champion

Mary Kate Boland’s involvement with SUNY Cortland didn’t end when she spoke at Commencement 2006 as president of the Student Government Association. The former biology major now advises SGA and offers guidance, advice and training to student groups as assistant director of Campus Activities. Currently in the midst of Welcome Week — with its busy days, evenings and weekends — Mary Kate is thrilled to be living just around the corner. She recently became the first College employee to benefit from the Live-In-Cortland Committee’s homeowner program. When did she move into her new house? Move-in weekend, of course!
