November Message

11/7/2012

Dear Morrisville State College Community,

This month marks the beginning of recovery for the many Americans who were affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. Our hearts and thoughts are extended to all who suffered losses, especially family members and friends of the Morrisville State College community. Thank you to the Emergency Response team at Morrisville- including NYS University Police, Residence Life, Physical Plant, and Public Relations, for their preparedness and diligence in keeping the campus safe during an uncertain time.

Congratulations to all involved on a successful open house in October. The level of interest indicated by the number of prospective students and families attending is a sign of Morrisville’s strength and mission. Thanks to the many faculty, staff and students who helped Morrisville State College put its best foot forward at the open house. We look forward to hosting another successful event this Saturday.

-          Cheers to the Morrisville State College men’s soccer team who clinched their first North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Championship title Sunday, posting a dramatic 2-1 overtime victory over top seed Penn State Abington in Fort Washington, Pa. The Mustangs earned the automatic bid to the NCAA Championship Tournament, the first in the history of the program.

-          Congratulations to the students, faculty and staff involved in another successful Yearling Sale, and Autumn Review Sale. Both of these events offer unique hands-on experiences as well as networking opportunities for students.

-          Excellence is what we strive to exhibit at Morrisville State College.  Please help the College Senate Awards Committee honor those on our campus who go above and beyond their duties with the SUNY Chancellor's Awards For Excellence. Nominations for the SUNY Chancellor’s Awards in the categories of Teaching, Librarianship, Professional Service, Scholarship & Creative Activities, and Faculty Service are now being accepted until Friday, November 30. Nomination forms are accessible to faculty/staff on the V:drive:  V:\College Senate\Committees\Committee Forms and Policies/Awards Committee. 

All these indicators of excellence help us to introduce Morrisville State College to those who may be learning about us or visiting us for the first time. For others already familiar with us, this is a busy time of year—visits to the campus by individuals and groups have increased. Additionally, an array of events that take place serve to enrich the Morrisville State College experience for our entire community.

Although November is sure to be a busy month for all of us, please remember to exercise your right to vote tomorrow.

Sincerely,

-Dr. Wolf Yeigh
