Campus Champion

Bob Orphan joined the SUNY Cortland team the week the New York Jets arrived on campus for training camp in July 2009. He’s part of a team of more than 100 cleaning staff responsible for clean and healthy building environments. Enter Moffett Center, follow the music and you’ll find Bob hard at work. Admired for his kindness, he listens to staff and student triumphs and tribulations. During summer’s deep cleaning, he’ll reminisce with alumni and greet prospective students, always sharing a smile and sometimes a home-baked treat. Bob’s diligence and devotion to the College's people and places make him a true campus champion.
