UUP Plans Holiday Party

12/03/2013 

Thomas Hischak’s comic spoof, “SUNY In Jeopardy,” performed by volunteer faculty and professional staff members, will be a highlight of the UUP Cortland Chapter’s 2013 annual Holiday Membership Gathering on Friday, Dec. 6.

The event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Corey Union Function Room and also features hors d’oeuvres and cocktails until 6 p.m. Professor of Music Stephen Wilson will perform on piano between 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.

At 5 p.m., those in attendance will toast the careers of their retiring colleagues.

“SUNY In Jeopardy” begins at 5:30 p.m. An annual spoof is a campus tradition of the holiday season, and this year’s performance offers up the popular quiz show but with an academic twist. Written and directed by Hischak, performing arts, the sketch will showcase as cast consisting of Girish Bhat, history; Mark Cerosaletti, modern languages; Judy Van Buskirk, history; Chris Xenakis, political science; and Karen Zimmerman, performing arts.

Members are encouraged to come and bring a colleague to celebrate the end of classes and to kick off the holiday season.

Late RSVPs are still welcome, as are walk-in members on the day of the event. To RSVP, contact uup@cortland.edu.
