  3. Sent to all UA Students today... "To the University at Albany Community: At a time when the University at Albany is reaching new heights in academics, research and athletics, there have been efforts by some to promote restructuring SUNY to make Buffalo and Stony Brook the system's two flagships. Many of you have rightly expressed concerns about the negative impact this would have on our campus and I have shared our mutual concerns with our state lawmakers and SUNY officials. I have been informed on numerous occasions that UAlbany will continue to be one of SUNY's four University research centers or flagships. I have no reason to believe this will not be the case. However, this is a time of serious state budget challenges, which includes a proposed two-and-a-half percent cut in the SUNY System overall operating budget. As you know, it is a very competitive landscape for higher education and we must advocate for the resources necessary to advance our agenda and to remain competitive on a national and international level I am asking you to join me on March 18th at the State Capitol for UAlbany Day to help promote the University's academic, research, and extracurricular success, and to showcase how our mission contributes immeasurably to the economic, intellectual, and cultural fabric of the greater Capital Region and beyond. We need you to help tell our story at UAlbany Day with our public officials, business leaders and community representatives from the Capital Region. So next Tuesday, please join UAlbany students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends at a rally and reception, which will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Albany Room in the Concourse of the Empire State Plaza. Last year UAlbany faculty attracted more than $240 million in research and development funding ranking us sixth in the state of top research universities. We generated more research and development funding than Stony Brook and slightly less than Buffalo. Our strategic location generates distinctive academic strengths in public policy, criminal justice, social welfare, education and public health, to name just a few. U.S. News and World Report places 13 UAlbany graduate programs in the nation's top 25. Our libraries rank among the nation's top research libraries. Students who study here are proud of its richly diverse student population, one of our great strengths and a critical feature of excellence across higher education. And when our students graduate they stay connected through a global alumni network of more than 140,000. Nearly 40,000 reside in the Capital Region holding influential positions in business and state government. Our Division I basketball, football, lacrosse and volleyball teams are competing and winning championships at the national level. UAlbany continues to be the summer home of the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. And if that's not enough, our College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is a global leader in nanotechnology, offering pioneering education, cutting-edge research, unparalleled resources, and a unique business model. Through corporate and governmental investments the college has built the most advanced research facility of its kind at any University in the world. CNSE and its $4.2 billion Albany Nanotech complex center have attracted more than 250 global corporate partners and are transforming and revitalizing the upstate New York economy. This success is attracting more academically talented students, and this year, we expect to receive more than 21,000 applications, a record number, from students competing for 2,350 places in our entering freshman class. There are countless other very compelling reasons why investing in UAlbany contributes to the intellectual, social and economic well-being of our region, the state and the nation. I hope to see you on UAlbany Day as we voice our support for and celebrate the success of the University at Albany. Sincerely, George M. Philip Interim President"
  4. --> QUOTE(Zalman B @ Feb 29 2008, 08:02 PM) 32013[/snapback] The apparent highlight of Binghamton cuisine is a "spiedie" (said speed-ee). I think I may have tried one once, but don't recall it really, so I'll let someone else describe it. I grew up on Spiedies, so maybe it's my duty to inform others about them. The spiedie: is a dish local to Greater Binghamton in the Southern Tier of New York State, and somewhat more broadly known and enjoyed throughout Central New York state. Spiedie consists of cubes of chicken and pork, but it may also be made from lamb, veal, venison or beef. The meat cubes are marinated overnight or longer (sometimes for as long as two weeks under a controlled environment) in a special spiedie marinade, then grilled carefully on spits over a charcoal pit. The freshly prepared cubes are served on soft Italian bread or a submarine roll, wood skewer and all, then drizzled with fresh marinade. The roll is used as an oven glove to grip the meat while the skewer is removed. Spiedie meat cubes can also be eaten straight off the wooden skewer or can be served in salads, stir fries, and a number of other dishes. The marinade recipe varies, usually involving olive oil, vinegar, and a variety of Italian spices and fresh mint. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiedie Places to get a Spiedie: Next to Bing Campus: Spiedie & Rib Pit (sit down place) 3908 Vestal Pkwy E Vestal, NY 13850 Others: Lupo's S&S Char Pit 6 West State Street Binghamton, NY Sharkey’s Restaurant (whole in the wall type of bar) 56 Glenwood Avenue Binghamton, NY Lupo's Char-Pit (no tables, just a walk in place where you can pick up a sub to go) 2710 E Main St Endicott, NY
  5. They should get on it and actually contact offices ASAP... that's close to the budget time, and if they want to actually get meetings with legislators they need to make appointments early.. just my little two cents. EDIT TO ADD: http://www.albany.edu/studentaffairs/docs/ualbany_day_08.pdf
  6. When Stony Brook was lobbying (students and staff) on Tuesday they basically said they were the flagship and that they needed support from the legislature because it would take them to make it official. There was no mention of Buffalo at all....of course so narrow minded. Of course I mentioned I was a SUNY alumni from Bing (don't kill me), and soon to be Albany in May. They didn't seem too happy and asked if I was going to SB for my PhD...and I said uhh no. They gloated about how it is the Gov's initiative to make SB the flagship because he mentioned it in his speech. Felt as if I wanted to vomit. On a funny note though I overheard a lady talking to some guy about how her son might play basketball for SB, and the man's response was that they need all the help they can get.
