HELP! (Healthy Eating and Living Program) Reminder

The next session of HELP! (Healthy Eating and Living Program) is scheduled for noon on February 1st in Morris Craven Lounge.  Our guest speaker is Valery Worden, Personal Trainer, who will present “Health and Fitness: A Realistic Approach”

We will have a scale there for anyone interested in privately weighing themselves and you will be given a “passbook” to privately track your progress, if you so desire.

If you have any healthy recipes, great tips to stay on track or other information you’d like to share, please bring them with you or you can send them to me and I can make copies to share.

We will have pitchers of lemon water available but bring your lunch if you’d like.

Please pass this on to others who may be interested.

CGHK Lecture in Environmental Education and Communication – Call for Speaker Nominations

The Cornell-Gladstone-Hanlon-Kaufmann (CGHK) Lectureship Committee seeks suggestions for speakers for the annual CGHK Lecture in Environmental Education and Communication. Established in 2000 with the generous support of Dr. William Kaufmann and his wife Virginia ’44, the CGHK Lectureship is an endowed fund within the College at Oneonta Foundation. The purpose of this lectureship is to bring to the SUNY Oneonta campus international leaders in environmental thought and education who will interact with students and faculty on campus, and who will present a free public lecture open to members of the campus and community.

Your input is needed to find engaging environmental scholars and practitioners. If you have suggestions, please help us to build a speaker database by completing a brief survey available on the CGHK webpage, which also includes information on the lectureship and previous speakers.

Speaker recommendations will be added to an ongoing database for consideration for future lectures. Suggestions made by February 15, 2017 will be included in the CGHK Committee’s discussion to identify the fall 2017 CGHK speaker.

Commencement Cords & Stoles

Every Commencement season rolls around and there is a bit of confusion on the graduates’ part about where to get cords or stoles.

Oak Hall, our regalia vendor offers these items and making arrangements to order them through the Outfitters is a great option.  We could order the cords you’d like, bill them to the department or we could discuss the possibility of offering them to the student directly.

With the implementation of Grad HQ (all commencement needs in one location) this could be the most hassle free way for the student to get them.

If your department offers cords or stoles and you’d be interested in giving the Red Dragon Outfitters the opportunity, please call x2090 or x2357.
