Campus Champion

Gloria Hulede is making changes in the world, beginning at SUNY Cortland. Spending her second summer as an Orientation assistant, Gloria believes in opening conversations early, making connections and offering a sense of belonging. As she maps her future, she knows it will include public health, public policy and a return to her childhood community in Ghana. Gloria is the Student Government Association executive vice president and is majoring in community health with a minor in speech and hearing science. She'll focus her senior year on a new initiative for a stronger Red Dragon community starting with the first-year students – helping them to make friends, build relationships and get involved.

Capture the Moment


It’s not all fun and games at Orientation but having a good time is definitely on the agenda. Raheemah Madany, center, is one of 24 orientation assistants spending several weeks this summer leading transfer and first-year students through two-day sessions that include discussions, ice breakers, name games and informational training as well as registration for fall classes. These steps prepare incoming SUNY Cortland students for success when they arrive on campus in August.
