Band of professors raises $1,000 for student scholarships

Faculty BandGlenn Geher (Psychology), Peter Kaufman (Sociology), Maureen Morrow (Biology), Brian Obach (Sociology), and Anne Roschelle (Sociology) are best known by academic personas, but add a few guitars, drums, and a flute and they become Questionable Authorities – the only all-professor band on campus.

Last week, the band, along with various New Paltz campus community members, performed at Bacchus Restaurant & Bar as part of the first annual “New Paltz Got Talent.” The event raised $1,000 for the Emergency Student Scholarship Fund at SUNY New Paltz.
