Campus Champion

Nia Vega, a junior sociology major with a minor in computer applications and a concentration in criminology, loves getting involved. A campus leader, Nia is president of Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER), vice president of Ritmo Latino, an EOP student and mentor and was recently appointed president of Men of Value and Excellence (M.O.V.E.). Recruited to grow M.O.V.E.’s membership, Nia started by planning informative meetings. Now, more SUNY Cortland men are empowered and supported by M.O.V.E. On Friday, the 8th annual Celebration of Men will recognize and celebrate outstanding men on campus through an awards ceremony.
