Campus Champion

Members of the Class of 2020 returned to campus on Sunday, May 15 for a "Welcome Back" Commencement Celebration. Their ceremony was postponed two years because of the pandemic - but it was worth the wait for the many who came back. They enjoyed catching up with classmates, faculty and staff and got to walk across the stage in Alumni Arena. SUNY Cortland thanks these students for their patience and admires them for their talents, their toughness and their Red Dragon spirit. Welcome home!
