Campus Champion

In May, Freddy Familia ’21 will receive his master’s in sport management following five productive years on campus. From the start, Freddy got involved. He was an EOP student mentor, an Orientation Assistant and a Resident Assistant. Fiercely focused on his goal to work for the Las Vegas Raiders, he got hands-on experience in athletics as Sport Management Club president, Student Life Center building supervisor and team manager for Cortland football. Currently the stadium and athletic facilities building supervisor, Freddy will take with him countless lifelong friends and a world of experience, connections and knowledge. As this campus champion embarks on a new chapter, SUNY Cortland is better for his time spent with us.
