New happenings

With many people gone, we are turning down the temps here so if you come on campus, dress warm!!  This is the third year of our intersession shut down, a time when we save a lot of energy and money.

We’ve also gotten two new pieces of equipment.  Our first hybrid bus has arrived.  The drivers are undergoing training so it will be operational for the spring semester. If you are in Albany over break, look for it down Western/Madison avenue.

We’ve also taken delivery of a bottle return machine.  This is located in the campus center near the SEFCU branch.  This is currently getting set up to accept plastic bottles and cans.  Monies can be redeemed at Outtakes.  This should be fully operational at the start of the spring semester.  So start collecting those returnables!!


Eating local

We are about to release our end of semester bulletin for the fall and in it I talk about a new source of buying local products: the Helderberg Market.  I posed this question to the readers of the bulletin and will repeat it here.   What is your favorite spot to purchase local produce?
