First-Year Funnel

For the past 15 years, incoming students have been welcomed to campus by way of the First-Year Funnel. Louise Tyo, director of tutoring & peer academic support at SUNY Potsdam, and other members of the Welcome Weekend Committee started the tradition in 2003 as a way for faculty, staff and upper-division students to line up and greet all of the new students on campus. Starting at the intersection of Barrington Dr. and Massena Dr., incoming students walk past cheering supporters en route to Hosmer Hall for their Welcome Convocation Ceremony. After a busy move-in day where incoming students settle into their new dorms and start making new friends, The First-Year Funnel is the perfect transition to campus. 

“We wanted to start a tradition that would be memorable and meaningful for the new students,” -Louise Tyo, director of tutoring & peer academic support at SUNY Potsdam
