Donation time for Hunt Union Food Shelf

The next date for food collection across campus will be February 18. To make it easier for employees to support & donate non-perishable food items, we have established various drop-off points. Below you will find a variety of campus locations and helpful contacts to collect your food donations. Donations are then moved to the Hunt Union to be stored and regularly distributed to the shelf. The program is 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. The Food Shelf is located on your left as you enter the lower level entrance to Hunt Union (near the pond).

Jean-Paul Orgeron reviews “Mind the Body”

Dr. Jean-Paul Orgeron (Milne Library) has published a review of Frederique de Vignemont’s Mind the Body: An Exploration of Bodily Self-Awareness (Oxford University Press, 2018) in the March 2019 issue of Choice (v. 56 n. 7). De Vignemont’s book is a valuable contribution to the interdisciplinary field of cognitive science and offers an uncompromising, novel stance on bodily awareness that originates not in the actions a body performs but, rather, in the mind’s representation of it. Currently the deputy director of the Jean Nicod Institute in Paris and a recipient of the 2015 Young Mind & Brain Prize, de Vignemont is also an executive editor of the Review of Philosophy and Psychology.

Theatre department to present “The Exception and the Rule”

The Theatre Department and the Mask and Hammer Theatre Club of SUNY Oneonta will present The Exception and the Rule by Bertolt Brecht, directed by John McCaslin-Doyle to be held in the Hamblin Theatre, Fine Arts Center at the following dates and times:

February 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m.

February 24 at 2:00 p.m.

February 26, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m.

This 1931 play by renowned German Playwright Bertolt Brecht tells the tale of a profit-seeking merchant who desires to cross the Yahi Desert. The merchant’s harsh treatment of his social inferiors shows the dark underbelly of human nature, particularly in the context of the capitalist system. The play reveals the inequities between the well-off merchant and his lower-class worker, in terms of both wealth and protection under the law.

Tickets are free with student ID or $5 General Admission. Tickets will go on sale Monday, February 11, at the Hunt Union Information Desk, available from 1 to 10 p.m. daily.  Tickets are also available by reserving online at or at the box office one hour prior to the performance.
