ONEONTA, N.Y. --SUNY Oneonta won five awards at the National Association for Campus Activities Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference from Oct. 9-12 in Buffalo.
The college received three Outstanding Program Awards for events held last fall: a Multicultural Student Leadership Conference, a talk on cultural diversity titled “I Can’t Believe You Asked That!” by author and journalist Phillip Milano, and a presentation by anti-death penalty activist and exonerated death row prisoner Delbert Tibbs. In the Graphic Arts Competition, SUNY Oneonta won two awards for posters, fliers and other materials produced to promote campus programs.
“It’s great to see the time and energy put in by our students and staff rewarded in this way, as it helps to bolster our belief that we contribute to student engagement and having an inclusive community– two of our college’s core values,” said Bill Harcleroad, the college’s director of campus activities.
SUNY Oneonta’s College Union Activities Council provides a variety of social, cultural, educational and recreational activities for the college community. Last year, CUAC offered more than 160 events ranging from films, concerts and comedy performances to lectures, trivia contests and late-night bowling.
