Campus Champion

Congratulations to Judy Stoddard ’24, M.S.T. ’10, senior academic counselor for SUNY Cortland’s Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), on her newest degree — a bachelor’s in psychology. Graduating summa cum laude, Judy was the oldest of the university’s 1,532 graduates who earned bachelor’s degrees on Saturday, May 11. Judy already holds a B.S. in management science from SUNY Binghamton, a graduation certificate from Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan and an M.S.T. in elementary education from SUNY Cortland in 2010. This lifelong learner says the psychology courses help her to understand students better as an academic counselor and when advocating for EOP student success.
