Oneonta Voices podcast kicks off

WONY student radio and the Department of Communication & Media are proud to announce the premiere of a student-created documentary radio/podcast series, ONEONTA VOICES. A bi-weekly news and public affairs program, the half-hour show is produced entirely by SUNY Oneonta students Joshua Colon, Jesse King, Roe Krassner, and Collin Ungerleider with supervision from Dr. Andrew Bottomley. These student media-makers are doing all the work, from choosing the episode themes and pitching the story ideas to conducting the interviews and editing all the audio.

The basic premise of ONEONTA VOICES is to capture a cross-section of life and experiences at and around SUNY Oneonta by highlighting various current events and social, cultural, political, and economic issues impacting the college’s students, faculty, and staff. The aim is to represent campus life in all its complexity, the show serving as a platform for elevating the diverse voices of the college community. The debut episode centers on the theme of first-year experiences, including student reflections on their introductions to SUNY Oneonta and information about navigating the new Excelsior Scholarship program. Future episodes will address themes such as cultural diversity, gender and sexuality, mental health, and commencement. Each episode also features a spotlight on a student artist or performer.

ONEONTA VOICES broadcasts on SUNY Oneonta’s student radio station, WONY 90.9 FM, every Saturday at noon, after which it’ll be distributed online as a podcast. The premiere episode debuted on Saturday, February 10. It can be heard online at:

Alejandra Escudero gives lecture on Luminous Letter Project

Alejandra Escudero of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures was invited to give a lecture at Rhode Island College on February 22-23 on The Luminous Letter Project she runs at SUNY Oneonta with her students.

Escudero’s lecture was part of the Hidden and Forgotten Histories lecture series, sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences. Students, staff, faculty and administrators attended the lecture and were inspired by what SUNY Oneonta students are doing in terms of Applied Learning initiatives in order to support the LGBTQ+ community in various Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers and state prisons across the United States.
