Wishing you a restful and meaningful Thanksgiving break


Dear students,

I want to take a moment to wish a safe journey to all of you who are traveling in the next few days. I hope you can use this time with friends and family to rest and relax before you return for the end of the semester.

Thanksgiving is a special day for so many of us. Whether you gather for a big meal, play two-hand-touch football in the backyard or sit back and watch the parades, make the most of your special traditions with loved ones.

This is also a time to give thanks and reflect on all that we are grateful for. I encourage you to consider sharing this gratitude with the people in your life who have made the most impact on you. A one-on-one conversation or a call, text message or email expressing your appreciation can make someone else’s day.

I am so personally grateful for all the students, faculty and staff who make SUNY Cortland such a terrific place for us to live, work and study.



All the best,


Erik J. Bitterbaum
