    - Posted on December 7, 2017
    • Greetings to the Campus Community,

      I want to acknowledge and say “thank you” to the hundreds of students, staff and faculty who helped make yesterday’s Inaugural Spirit Day a huge success! 😊

      We estimate that more than 500 folks donated a food item to the pantry and an equal number stopped by for the Spirit Day festivities in the Campus Center. Thanks to all of you
      who contributed to this effort, and we are pleased to note that the food pantry is well stocked as we head toward the end of the fall semester.

      I would also extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff of the Div. of Enrollment and Student Development who sponsored and coordinated this event.

      Finally, it is our hope to create and develop more Campus Spirit events–so if your dept or organization has an idea for sponsoring something special, please contact Louis Coplin.

      Go green!

      Interim VP of Enroll. Management and Student Dev.

  • Student Senate efforts benefit two relief projects
    - Posted on December 5, 2017
    • The Student Senate currently is involved in two community outreach projects.

      Students are working with Katie Pawloski, assistant professor in the Nursing Department, to assist hurricane victims in the Virgin Islands, where a multitude of items ranging from food to solar lights are needed, and hope that faculty and staff will join the effort.

      The list of needed items changes often, according to Pawloski. Therefore, donations of Amazon gift cards are highly recommended since they’re easy and inexpensive to ship and can be used for whatever items are in most demand at the moment.

      The Student Senate also is collecting new and/or gently-used clothing that will be donated to the Capital City Rescue Mission in Albany. Given the season, donations of hats, gloves, warm socks and coats are most welcome!

  • Summer 2018 hours for Marvin Library Learning Commons
    - Posted on December 4, 2017
    • After a careful review of service demand and building occupancy, the 2018 summer hours for Marvin Library Learning Commons will be:

      Monday, Thursday, Friday — 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. (4 p.m. during summer hours)
      Tuesday, Wednesday — 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

      Building occupancy between 7 and 10 p.m. was in the single digits for all combined service areas in the building and demand for faculty-delivered service was low during previous summer sessions. Impact of this change will be assessed at the conclusion of the Summer 2018 terms to determine whether the change will become permanent.

  • Important update: Empties for Animals
    - Posted on November 30, 2017
    • The Animal Outreach Club continues to collect returnable bottles and cans on campus which benefit the ongoing and growing need of animal rescue organizations throughout the region.

      At this time collection boxes are located only in the Administration Building and the Siek Campus Center.

      All other collection boxes have been removed from other locations on campus because bottles and cans have been stolen, and people are throwing garbage and trash into these containers that are clearly labeled for their intended purpose! (If you require a pick up of empties, please let us know.)

      Currently, the Empties for Animals proceeds are going to the Caring Heart Horse Rescue, which desperately needs the money.

  • Theatre Arts students present Will Eno’s “Middletown” Nov. 30 – Dec. 2
    - Posted on November 21, 2017
    • Students in the Theatre Arts Program present “Middletown” by Will Eno at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30, Dec. 1 and 2 in the Maureen Stapleton Theatre, located in the Siek Campus Center. Admission is free at all performances.

      Eno’s play is a moving and witty inquiry into what it means to live out the “middle” of one’s life in a small town community where the middle of life begins right after one is born and lasts until one’s death. The college’s production is directed by Assistant Professor Roseanne Raneri.

      As a friendship develops between longtime resident John Dodge and new arrival Mary Swanson, the lives of the inhabitants of Middletown intersect in strange and poignant ways in a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points between. Middletown features a wide array of characters — cop, mechanic, librarian, to name just a few — who together populate the play with Eno’s trademark subversive style.

      “Will Eno is an original, a maverick wordsmith whose weird, wry dramas gurgle with the grim humor and pain of life,” — The Guardian. He has been called “a Samuel Beckett for the John Stewart generation.”

  • This week in athletics
    - Posted on November 20, 2017
    • Men’s Basketball (3-3) split games last week, defeating Adirondack, 94-65, at home on Wednesday, Nov. 15. Mitchell Dame led all scorers with 26 points and added nine rebounds. On Sunday, Nov. 19, the Vikings were on the wrong side of a buzzer beater as they lost in overtime at Schenectady, 70-69. Dame and Sean Webb each scored 13 points.

      Men’s basketball is on the road Tuesday, Nov. 21 when they travel to play Ulster at 7 p.m.

      Women’s Basketball (5-1) has now won four straight games and surpassed last season’s win total (4-20 in 2016-17) with Sunday’s 55-50 win at Schenectady. Late in the fourth quarter, Schenectady pulled within a possession of the Vikings and Hudson Valley’s Melpomeni Doutsis responded by hitting a clutch 3-pointer to put the game out of reach of the Royals and secured the Vikings fifth win of the year and remain undefeated in the Mountain Valley Collegiate Conference (3-0).

      The Women’s team also defeated Adirondack, 76-70, on Wednesday, Nov. 15 and Kingsborough, 98-62, on Saturday, Nov. 18. The team’s 98 points are the most points scored by the Vikings since Feb. 6, 2007 when they defeated Adirondack 102-62.
