Profiles

Students
My ideal job is anything in the theater or media world. I definitely want to look into directing and editing. My biggest dream would probably be working on a TV or movie set, either working behind the scenes or onstage – I love both realms. I want to be in that environment.
Alumni
The most important lesson for any aspiring songwriter is networking. You might meet someone in college who’s a freshman when you’re a senior, and that might end up being the most talented person you’ve ever met. I have a friend I graduated with who works at Columbia Records now, and we work together. Never count anybody out.
Students
So far my favorite class is Apparel in Today’s Economy with Dr. Portway. She’s amazing, I love her. It’s so fun. We’re working on group projects, which you have to do in the industry. We talk about all of the financial stuff and the climate, and it’s really just so interesting. She starts every single class off with a fashion show, and that’s so fun.

Percussionist Blake Fleming has been featured by the biggest music publications and magazines, wrote “The Book of Rhythm,” and toured the United States and Canada opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers in stadiums of 14,000 people. But none of those experiences compare to the feeling he gets while teaching someone how to play the drums.
Alumni
As a freshman studying Fashion & Textiles at SUNY Oneonta, Mallory Kerman had never owned a pair of Levi’s. Peek into her closet now and you’ll find SIXTY pairs of the classic denim brand.
Students
Garrett Camasi wasn’t able to make it to his freshman orientation at SUNY Oneonta, but he had a very good excuse: He was photographing Asian elephants at a Sri Lankan orphanage with nonprofit Veterinarians International.
Faculty and Staff
SUNY Oneonta Health Educator Rebecca Harrington isn’t afraid to tackle the taboo topics. After all, two of her best-known on-campus initiatives have been the Hump Day Wagon (a weekly, traveling contraceptive giveaway) and Sex & Pizza (an engaging sex education program for incoming freshmen).
Faculty and Staff
Just like Hermia in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” SUNY Oneonta Assistant Professor of Acting, Directing and Movement Kiara Pipino is little, but she is fierce. And her students know that better than anyone.
Students
I want to be an entertainment lawyer, doing copyright and writing contracts for artists and athletes. Not just in the U.S. but internationally. I speak English, Mandarin, Korean and Spanish. So that would be my dream job.
Students
The opportunities I’ve had, especially to travel, I will never forget. The summer after my freshman year, our tennis team went to Portugal, and that was the first time I had been overseas. It was incredible. Being able to see and live in another culture temporarily is so eye-opening.
Students
I want to be a middle school Spanish teacher, probably like eighth grade. It’s a good age where you can interact with them and they can start to form their own opinions and add substance to a conversation. It’s really when they dive into language and start learning about why it’s so important to learn other languages and how it can connect people.
Students
I love how there are a lot of women in my major because computer science doesn’t really have a lot of women in the field. So that’s great to see. I wanted to prove – especially as a black woman – that anyone can be a computer science major. If men try to talk down to you, just show them what you can do!
