The ceremony recognized more than 100 faculty, staff and administrators who reached five, 10, 15, 20 and 25 or more years of service to the college. The event also honored those retiring from the college this year.

Kittens have taken up residence in the Margaret L. Wendt Animal Behavior lab in Science Hall. The campus community is invited to view training and enrichment sessions through today, Monday, April 15 and from Monday, April 22 – Thursday, May 2.
K. Workman’s ABEC 220: Animal Learning class, in cooperation with the SPCA
Serving Erie County, will welcome five kittens for enrichment and training.
sessions include teaching the kittens to walk into a carrier on their own and
completing a small agility course, which makes them attractive adoption
candidates and encourages positive relationships with humans that will help
kittens transition to their new families. Stress and anxiety attached to
catching and putting cats in a carrier are major reasons why cats are seen less
often by veterinarians.
these kittens, there will be no stress or anxiety, as they will choose to enter
the carrier by themselves.
kittens will be on campus until Thursday, May 2, and will then be available for
adoption. The days and times for enrichment are:
