The offices of Communications and Admissions are looking for students interested in representing the college in recruitment brochures, videos and other promotional materials targeted toward prospective students and parents. We’ll be holding an open “Casting Call” on Thursday, Sept. 25, from noon to 7 p.m. in the IRC TV studios to meet interested students. Each student will have a short interview, photo session, and video screen test. Students do not need to be particularly photogenic, articulate or involved in a variety of activities. We’re interested in meeting any student who has had a positive experience at SUNY Oneonta and wants to share their story! This is not an audition – we hope to incorporate all the student stories we receive in some form, whether it’s a short vignette about a study abroad or research experience in an Admissions brochure, or a video on the college website.

We are hoping to get a wide variety of representation in terms of ethnicity, hometown, class year, academic major, club & organization involvement, internships, research, volunteering, studying abroad, etc. If you know students who you think would represent Oneonta well, please encourage them to participate. Students can sign up ahead of time at http://bit.ly/oneontacastingcall.

This program, funded by the College at Oneonta Foundation and the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association, provides funding for independent research and creative activity projects conducted by students with faculty sponsorship. Guidelines and application materials for the fall 2014 round of the Student Grant Program (for 2015 funding) are available athttp://www.oneonta.edu/academics/frc/applications/applications.asp. The application deadline is November 12, 2014.

Program highlights:

  • Separate guidelines and application forms are used for Research projects and Creative Activity projects.
  • Student awardees are eligible to receive fellowships of up to $300 per project (not per student, if multiple), so students should be encouraged to apply even if they don’t need funding for materials, supplies or other expenses.
  • Faculty mentors will receive a $300 fellowship or travel award for each project sponsored (two maximum per grant cycle); for projects with multiple mentors, the $300 award will be split.

Contact a member of the Committee on Research (available on the website) if you have questions.
