Campus Champion

Emily Gallagher, a political science major and geographic information systems (GIS) minor, wraps up her final semester at SUNY Cortland fulfilling a GIS internship with the New York Department of Environmental Conservation. Graduating in just three years, Emily’s commitment to campus activities has made her an accomplished leader and promoter. Since her freshman year she has helped draw large turnouts as the Cortland Nites event manager. This led to her positions as SGA events coordinator, Equestrian Club president and Student Government Association rep for the Crochet Club. Now, following months of planning, this Campus Champion will launch her grand finale — The Big Event on April 21.
