The college has determined the dates for Family Weekend 2019. Please mark your calendars for Sept. 27-29, 2019. If you are interested in serving on the Steering Committee this semester, or have an idea for an activity your office or department want to coordinate, please contact Robb.Thibault@oneonta.edu or 436-3013. The Steering Committee will begin meeting in February.
Hunt College Union extends its thanks to the Division of Finance and Administration for contributing to the Food Shelf. In December, the Division collected and donated 187 pounds of nonperishable food items and a gift card to Hannaford’s. The Hunt Union staff used this to purchase an additional 203 pounds of food items to combat food insecurity.
The Food Shelf, supported by the Office of Student Life and Leadership/Hunt College Union, Center for Social Responsibility and Community, Student Association, Office of Equity and Inclusion, and the Office of Sustainability, is located on your left as you enter the lower level entrance to Hunt Union (near the pond).
Traditionally, the GSRC has hosted various programming during the month of March to celebrate Women’s History/Herstory. Since there are likely other programs happening across campus highlighting women throughout the month, a means of cross-promotion by compiling these events into one cohesive calendar so that our community is aware of what different departments/offices are hosting during March may be additionally beneficial. Programming can include speakers, film screenings, dialogues, activities, etc.
If you or your department/office plans to have any programming that would coincide with Women’s History/Herstory Month, please contact Emily Phelps at Emily.Phelps@oneonta.edu.
