Homecoming & Family Weekend 2020

I thought that this was an apropos saying as we have had to make a difficult decision about our 2020 Homecoming event. Given the current circumstances nation-wide and our need to provide a safe environment for students and staff, we have decided to cancel Homecoming. And so, our Homecoming Weekend Barn has just burned down, but we too have a Moon to view.

For the extended SUNY Cobleskill community, our Moon is bringing our current students back to campus and providing them with a robust academic program. This important and relevant educational experience necessitates making sacrifices to protect our students and staff and ensure the continuation of their education.

We know that you understand and support our mission. The pandemic may have slowed down many rituals and traditions, but it will not slow down a Coby Education. Please keep your eye on that Moon, and be  ready to celebrate the next generation of alumni/ae in the Spring. Continue to check our website as we move through our restart together. Your sacrifice will not go unnoticed, and our Coby Moon will be full for a long time to come.

—President Marion Terenzio

The greatest gift an alumnus can make to an institution is to share that experience with others so that they, too, may join the celebrated ranks of a beloved alma mater. As alumni of SUNY Cobleskill, we must work hard to support our current students and the institution’s educational enterprise. It saddens me to lose one of the weekends I look forward to most in the year, but it is worth it to support the health and safety of the excellent staff, faculty, and students currently residing on our great campus. SUNY Cobleskill has always been a place where stars shined a little bit brighter, and we all must take the time to be thankful for the moon.”
