Campus Champion

Archivist and Instructional Services Librarian Jeremy Pekarek is motivated by what’s been accomplished in his first year to preserve SUNY Cortland’s history. A recent grant has provided a much-needed boost to digitizing part of the College’s student newspaper collection. Jeremy and other librarians will discuss the efforts of Digital Commons@Cortland and the Archives Research Guide at a Sandwich Seminar on Wednesday, March 13, followed by how to get involved with research guides on Wednesday, April 10. In June, Jeremy presents at the New York Archives Conference. He also serves as library liaison to the History, Philosophy, Communication and Media Studies and Jewish Studies departments.

Capture the Moment


Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Tom Chapin returned to SUNY Cortland Tuesday for a concert at Old Main Brown Auditorium. Some members of the audience were there when Chapin played at SUNY Cortland during the ’70s and ’80s — both solo and with his legendary brother, the late pop star Harry Chapin. The concert was co-sponsored by the Musical Legacy Commemorative Project: 1960-1990. The committee of SUNY Cortland alumni is raising awareness of the legendary artists who have performed on campus.
