BETA GAMMA SIGMA: Top Business Students Join International Honor Society

The SUNY Oneonta chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) invited 13 students to join the honor society, which is made up of over 750,000 students and alumni throughout 160 countries worldwide. Beta Gamma Sigma is an international business honor society and the highest acknowledgment a student in the School of Economics and Business can receive. BGS collegiate chapters are only at schools accredited by AACSB International.

Upon being invited to the growing SUNY Oneonta chapter, the students were recognized for their academic achievement in front of their classmates and professors.

CGP Student Project

Patricia Norman, Samantha Strzepek, and Sara Umland, second-year students in the Cooperstown Graduate Program, worked with professor Cynthia Falk last spring to nominate the Jewel Family Homestead in Guilford, Chenango County, to the New York State and National Registers of Historic Places.  The property includes a circa 1824 house built by the Jewell family using a traditional New England form. The house has been owned by Jewell descendants since its construction. Updates to the property show technological and social developments and include the addition of a kitchen wing to allow for cooking on an iron stove, a privy, and a small barn. In the early twentieth century family owners invested in the derelict property as a memorial to their predecessors, choosing to keep and augment historic features.  On September 22, the New York State Board for Historic Preservation voted to move the Jewell Homestead forward for listing.   Congratulations Trish, Sam, and Sara!
