    SUNY Oneonta senior Alex Lyakhov has been selected to receive the SUNY Emerging Leader Award in recognition of his work to improve sustainability on campus. Lyakhov was one of 17 students chosen from throughout SUNY’s 64 campuses to receive the award, which was given for the first time this year.

    The meteorology major from Brooklyn said he first became interested in environmental issues following the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

    “The loss of animal life, 11 people killed…I was devastated by that. I started researching the oil industry, and the more I learned, the more I realized that things were worse than I’d thought. I began to realize that there’s an opportunity here on this campus where we could be the drivers of major social change that’s deeply needed at this time in history.”

  • Oneonta A Top College For Harry Potter Fans

    Attention, aspiring wizards: About.com has conjured up a list of the “Top Colleges for Harry Potter Fans” and we’re on it!

    SUNY Oneonta comes in at #8 on the list, which is featured in the College Admissions section of the website. The college’s Harry Potter Club was singled out because of its focus on volunteerism.

    Established last year, the club incorporates community service – with a particular emphasis on promoting literacy – into many of its activities. Its first major event was a Triwizard Tournament last spring that culminated in a Yule Ball benefit for Oneonta Reading is Fundamental, a nonprofit organization that provides free books to elementary school children. Club President Sarah Vitro says plans are in the works for a “bigger and better” Yule Ball benefit event on March 8, 2013, at the Hunt College Union.

  • College Postpones Townhouse Project

    SUNY Oneonta has postponed construction of a townhouse facility that originally had been scheduled to open to students in 2014.
