The Campaign for Cortland: Nuturing SUNY’s Healthiest, Most Athletic Campus


[upbeat music playing] One of my first messages I sent out to
our staff when I became athletic director was about being together as one
unit. The bottom of my phrase was, “Let’s work together, let’s be one team, let’s be one family,” and it really just caught on like wildfire. (Angelo Foster)
I really take pride in being
an athlete at SUNY Cortland. I know every time like I say, “Oh, I play football for SUNY Cortland,” and people are like “Oh wow.” “Really? Like that that’s such a
great thing.” So I really take pride in it. But it definitely is like a culture
where people push to get better and push to be not only better people but better athletes, better in the classroom. So all around, I feel like it’s just a culture
that promotes growth. I definitely think that SUNY Cortland
promotes having a healthy, active lifestyle. As you can see when you pass the Student Life Center, we have a really impressive gym
that anyone on the campus can use. And then you look at how extensive
our intramural and our club programs are. That just really speaks volumes to the understanding
of all students and not just the few. [upbeat music continues] (Dan MacNeill)
Our facilities, with the focus of
administration here and then the help of alums, have made the stage of the Red
Dragon just a wonderful experience for them. (Mike Urtz)
I think it’s important to allow
today’s student to have the unbelievable experience that we had as an alum. And in order to do so, we’re going to have to
rely on their alumni support. (Nadia Moore)
Once you’re a Red Dragon, you’re a Red Dragon forever. We have to help each other whether
we’re still in college and beyond then. [music fades]
