Campus Champion

Resident Assistant Matthew McNally spends a great deal of his time helping other students who live on campus. But he wanted to do more to give back to the local community as well. Matt is the student coordinator for SUNY Cortland’s 13th annual Adopt-A-Family holiday drive sponsored by the Residence Life and Housing Office. He’ll join friends at the Parks Alumni House on Wednesday, Dec. 5, to wrap gifts for children from more than 20 local families who would have otherwise gone without this holiday. A senior adolescence education: social studies major, Matt will be student teaching on Long Island next semester.
