Eighteen students got hands-on experience with wetlands restoration during a service-learning trip in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward last week. Working with a nonprofit organization called Common Ground Relief, the students planted hardy, fast-growing native plants and removed invasive species in coastal areas imperiled by hurricanes, development and engineering projects that have eroded land and endangered wildlife. They planted thousands of Cypress trees, visited the levy that broke during Hurricane Katrina, and even rescued an abandoned dog that was starving in the wetlands.
A new project developed by SUNY Oneonta's Psychology and Sociology departments is giving six students an applied-learning experience in the fields of health care and human service while also looking to alleviate some serious community problems.

Student researchers Joshua Garufi and Taryn More of Oneonta, Kathryn Kilichowski of Middle Village, Judson Parisi of Delmar, and Stacy Pinto and Peter Richardson of Oceanside are working this year with several local health and social service agencies to examine the well-being of area residents and identify areas that need improvement.

Willmott, who serves as a push coach and strength and conditioning coach, will leave Oneonta on Sunday and arrive in Seoul on Tuesday. He’ll be on-hand at the Olympic Village while the four USA skeleton athletes (two men and two women) complete their daily practice runs, hurling themselves headfirst down the narrow skeleton track on a sled that lacks an engine, brakes or seat belt and can reach speeds of more than 90 miles per hour.
