The SUNY Cortland Stadium Complex will light up tomorrow night, in a symbolic gesture for the thousands of students finishing their spring semesters away from campus.
University officials say the idea was inspired by similar “Friday Night Lights” at schools across the country.
Each is being held in support of the many students and athletes who experienced a premature end to their school years and seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our students are at the heart of SUNY Cortland,” said Kevin Pristash ’85, M ’91, director of Corey Union and campus activities. “We want them to know that we miss them, support them in their efforts and can’t wait until they are back on campus again.”
Stadium lights will be turned on around 8 pm and the beacon of the complex will glow until 10 p.m.
