Senior Week

The Oneonta Safe Ride Project, created by SUNY Oneonta students, seeks to raise money for a designated cab service to provide a safe ride home for students in need.  Created by local production company Certain Grants, hosted by Chi Phi Fraternity, with sponsorship headed by Liberty Tax Service of Oneonta, the campaign is aimed at uniting local businesses and student organizations in the hopes of making Oneonta a safer place.   Funds will be collected on indiegogo.com, a crowd funding platform, beginning April 22, and the free service for students will launch this fall. Wayne’s World Taxi will be providing the safe rides at a discounted rate of four dollars per ride. The primary focus of this campaign is to take a stand against sexual violence and assaults in the community.  The businesses and student organizations that support this message will be featured in an upcoming public service announcement (PSA), which hopes to air on broadcast television.  The PSA, shot in the style of a music video, will feature students and businesses dancing to express a message of joy, and to show a united community in the face of potential violence.  All donations will pay for rides, provided by Waynes World Taxi at a discounted rate, for students caught in threatening situations or those who simply have no means for a safe ride home.  Every $4 donation will translate to one free ride that could keep someone from harm or even save a life.  The initial goal is $2000, which will provide five hundred safe rides to students.  The campaign hopes to surpass that to meet their second goal of $4000, which will offer one thousand free rides to students in need.  This will be the first service of its kind to offer Oneonta students a guaranteed safe ride home.  The organizers hope that the service will continue to be offered at SUNY Oneonta for years to come. Anyone interested in joining the fight can donate by going to Liberty Tax Service of Oneonta’s Facebook page, and clicking on the campaign link.  If interested in being part of the PSA, any business owner, organization, or community member is encouraged to contact the producers at oneontasaferide@gmail.com or by phone at (917) 532-8652.  

BookSUNY Oneonta's own Dustin Tropp has published a book on running for political office. It is currently available on Amazon and will be available for other e-book platforms as well.

Congratulations to Kwasi Agyemang, Graduate Student at the Cooperstown Graduate program, for his 2nd place win at New York State’s Collegiate Business Plan Competition.  On April 10th, Kwasi and Dr. Brian Alexander,  Visiting Professor & Director of the Institute for Cultural Entrepreneurship, traveled to SUNY Poly, Utica Campus to partake in the Mohawk Valley Regional Qualifier.  Kwasi took 2nd place in the IT/Software category with his company Travelsee.  Travelsee helps users find and share cultural experiences at museums and cultural attractions based on GPS location and keywords.   However, unlike other location-based apps, Travelsee uses cultural experiences as a social hub for real-time visitor engagement.  Kwasi will be representing SUNY Oneonta and the Mohawk Valley at the State Finals in Albany on April 24th! Sodxeo
