Campus Champion

Tanya Maggs, general manager at the Lynne Parks ’68 SUNY Cortland Alumni House, began Reunion 2022 preparations over a year ago coordinating menus, vendors, set up and staff. Everything came together July 14 to 17 with back-to-back events throughout the weekend. Tanya’s talent as a hospitality professional directly impacted Reunion’s overwhelming success. “Always focused on hospitality, last week in the midst of Reunion set up, she took time to present Parks Alumni House as a potential venue to a new customer,” said Erin Boylan, Alumni Engagement executive director. “But it’s her ability to build relationships with our alumni that makes her a champion at her game.”
