SUNY - Cortland Orientation

By B. Pasapane on Apr/06/2015


On March 29th, the newly established Society Chapter at SUNY - Cortland held their first member orientation. With an extraordinary response to their inaugural invitation, the chapter hosted the event with over 500 students in attendance.

Not only was the turnout great, but the event was exemplary too! Despite feeling nervous beforehand, SUNY - Cortland’s Society Chapter President, Aubrey Martin, and her Executive Board had planned everything from start to finish. Instead of having one long check-in line, they had multiple check-in tables organized in alphabetical order. In preparation for the event, the Executive Board had a mock orientation, which helped them exercise their public speaking skills. Each board member spoke during the presentation and they walked around the large audience during the activities to make sure everyone was participating. A high level of professionalism remained constant throughout the event and appearance was no exception; the Executive Board color-coordinated their outfits to match one another.

Congratulations to the SUNY - Cortland Society Chapter for effectively executing the first of many member events. If your chapter is hosting an extraordinary event for your members, we encourage you to share your story with us by emailing the details and pictures to You may see your chapter featured in a future newsletter!
