Campus Champion

Aaren Woodworth is a senior physical education major with a concentration in outdoor adventure education. Aaren’s enthusiasm is his super power — he inspires the next generation of movers while changing the culture around how physical education is taught with the focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. He’s president of the SUNY Cortland Alliance of Physical Education Majors Club and was named Outstanding Major of the Year by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. An exceptional public speaker, Aaren presents in classrooms and on regional and statewide stages. He recently added a national engagement to his 2024 schedule, addressing the Society of Health and Physical Educators at the SHAPE America convention.

A student visits the recently relocated SUNY Cortland Cupboard, a food pantry open to students in need of food and personal hygiene items at no cost. The Cupboard moved from the basement of 7 Calvert St. to Old Main, Room B-05 in the building’s basement level. Students can use the entrance by the Bowers Greenhouses, go down the stairs and into the double doors. In the vestibule, use the stairs on the left to go down. The Cupboard is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Students will need to swipe their SUNY Cortland ID card to enter. 

Follow us to SUNY Cortland Cupboard’s new location in Old Main.
