Campus Champion

Anthony Pellegrino has always known he wants to be a teacher in his hometown on Long Island, N.Y. Despising cold weather, he ventured to North Carolina State University as a freshman but after a semester he wanted a strong teaching university closer to home. He fell in love with SUNY Cortland on a winter day visit so he decided to become a Red Dragon. Anthony is an RA and involved with the Transfer Network Team. He’s a great resource for new transfers. The junior adolescence education: social studies and economics major recently was named president of Tau Sigma, the transfer honor society. We recognize Anthony and all our transfer students during National Transfer Student Week, Oct. 19 to 23.
