WINNING CONNECTION -- SUNY Oswego alumnus Steve Doran of Merrill Lynch
(right) talks with junior accounting major Jeffrey Storch at the
college's School of Business Student-Alumni Symposium on campus in
April. Doran first met Storch at New York City Career Connections in
January and helped him to land an internship in tax accounting with a
Madison Avenue firm. New York City Career Connections received one of
three awards won by the Oswego Alumni Association in the SUNY Council
for University Affairs and Development competition this year. The
program, designed to bring together alumni and current students for
networking opportunities in New York City during winter break, won a
"Best in Category" award for alumni programs among all SUNY campuses.
Michelle Tackett-Spinner, assistant director of alumni and parent
relations, coordinated the program, which drew 23 alumni and 65
students, a 30 percent increase over last year. The Oswego alumni
magazine and Oswego Parents newsletter both received judge's citations.
