Volunteer spotlight: Helping new students feel at home at Binghamton

 
By Steve Seepersaud

Although it has been 11 years since Rose Barre '06, MA '08 was a freshman, she clearly remembers what it was like to be a newcomer on the Binghamton University campus. She shared some reflections on that special time in her life with members of the Class of 2017 during Convocation, held on Move-in Day in August.

Rose Barre '06, MA '08Barre, the keynote speaker at Convocation, is senior specialist of premium sales and service for the New York Yankees. Since she graduated, she has remained involved with the University through student-alumni career development events. She encouraged freshmen to make the most of their time as students because it will be over before they know it.

"I envy where you are now, the newness, the little bit of intimidation, the challenges you'll be faced with," Barre said. "Let curiosity guide your choices."

About a dozen alumni volunteers were present at Convocation to wish the new students well and give them a Class of 2017 Bearcat for Life T-shirt. For the third straight year, the Alumni Association has provided this keepsake to the newest members of the Binghamton University family.

"As an alumnus, I personally find it rewarding to be involved with Binghamton University activities," said Ken Kidder '85. "The basis of my career started with the fine education I received from Binghamton, and I enjoy the opportunity to give a little something back as a volunteer. I also enjoy interacting with the new students with bright futures ahead, and I feel that alumni can provide a sense of encouragement. I also view the interaction with current students as a form of succession planning for the Alumni Association."

This relatively new campus tradition – introduced at the same time as the freshman T-shirts – is also intended to help build a sense of school spirit and class identity among new students.
