Campus Champion

SUNY Cortland’s Outdoor Pursuits (OP) has something for everyone. Members of the campus community can rent hundreds of items for outdoor adventures such as camping, biking, winter travel, climbing, hiking and paddling, or they can explore with a group under the guidance of trip leaders. Managing the OP leaders are graduate assistants Nicole Kuzdzal (right), a therapeutic recreation major, and Morgan Costello (left), an outdoor and environmental education major. Nicole and Morgan run the climbing wall, oversee the Cortland Bike Project and lead trips and workshops — true champions for the positive impact of the outdoors on mental and physical health, happiness and overall well-being. Follow Outdoor Pursuits on Instagram for photos from their adventures.

Capture the Moment

Capture moment soccer rings.jpg

Members of SUNY Cortland’s 1980 women’s soccer national title team returned to campus on Sept. 13 and 14 and showed off their new championship rings. Because of budget restraints in 1980 — the team drove for two days straight in a pair of red vans to play in the national finals in Colorado — the team did not receive rings at the time. Team members also unveiled a gift, a new scoreboard on Holloway Field that pays tribute to their accomplishments. Learn more at RedDragonNetwork.org.
