Fall 2021 Guidance/COVID-19 Information

Campus Artist and Lecture Series (CALS)

Due to the ongoing pandemic the Campus Artist and Lecture Series (CALS) 2020-2021 Season was quite small and everything was done virtually.  The CALS Facebook and Instagram sites were dormant all year as well.  Information about any specific event was also available through our Cortland Connects site and on the Campus Activities social media sites.  We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to being able to do more next year.
