Campus Champion

Alumni Reunion 2019 lasts four days, July 11 to 14, but LuAnn Poole, lodging and events coordinator at the Lynne Parks ’68 SUNY Cortland Alumni House, has spent a portion of the last four months preparing. The Parks Alumni House is a year-round bed and breakfast and special-event facility that hosts weddings and private parties, business meetings and workshops and overnight lodging in five elegant rooms. LuAnn is the perfect go-to person, responsible for event planning, reservations, catering schedules and more. Her compassion for the house is reflected in her kindness to its guests. Alumni Reunion 2019 will celebrate the close of SUNY Cortland’s Sesquicentennial.
