In Topic: SUNY Free Tuition

22 June 2017 - 07:38 PM

Most folks in California, Georgia or Michigan have never heard of SUNY. I've lived in all three. If Cuomo wants credit for free tuition he should be pushing the SUNY Centers to become household names like UCLA or Georgia Tech. That means big time athletics and top academics (the opposite of access).

I wasn't aware nor did I care that Tennessee offers free tuition to their community colleges. Free tuition to Georgia Tech or UCLA would be much more impressive.

Most Americans would guess SUNY is the name of a foreign transfer student not major university. Athletics and branding need to be the focus else who cares if it's free.

I'm concerned SUNY Poly is the smart choice and UA will be the "access" option. Maybe that was the plan behind the spin off all along?

I would have preferred a leader from a STEM field. UA has suffered from a lack of professional colleges and science/technical fields. We need fewer "studies" programs and more math.

On the athletics side we'll have to wait and see. Hope he does no damage.

Wishing we had Dr Jones back

Glad there is a resolution that lets them play.

When North Carolina is targeted over Cuba, Iran and North Korea or dozens of other countries with horrible human rights records you have to question your sanity.

We also don't have the Bubba Alumni as Bill Clinton's campaign guy referred to LSU non-alumni fans.

I think our branding as "Albany" as opposed to "New York" is a big part of that problem.
