Sunday Move-in Day

Staff did a great job welcoming over 3,000 new students on Sunday, Aug. 21, despite the heavy rain. More than 800 ponchos were distributed to students, family and staff to help them as they navigated moving in during the wet weather. As a result, positive feedback was received from parents about the entire experience.

Old Digman Hall

Old Digman Hall reopened for the fall semester after a $5.5-million renovation. The hall – established with a health and wellness community theme – is housing140 freshman students.
Residents were offered an opportunity to try out the on-campus ropes course before classes began, and other amenities include:
• 10 group exercise classes offered weekly in the building
• REACH and RAD classes offered in the building
• Weekly nutrition programs for the first six weeks with Alexa Schmidt, registered dietician with Binghamton University Dining Services, including tours of health choices in the dining halls, healthy snacking, breakfast on-the-go choices and more
• Installation of four bicycle desks on the ground floor

Students of Concern data

A big thank you goes to all who worked with the Students of Concern Committee, which provided support to 263 students who were brought to the committee’s attention in the spring semester. Of those students, 93 percent were able to finish the semester!
