Save the Dates! Holiday open house and awards luncheon

The holiday season is fast approaching, and that means it’s time to celebrate with colleagues and friends. Please save the dates for these upcoming SUNY New Paltz festivities:

President Donald P. Christian and his wife Sandy Christian invite the campus community to a Holiday Open House for academic and professional faculty, M/C employees and retired faculty, on Saturday, Dec. 7, at the President’s residence, 29 Cedar Ridge Rd., New Paltz.

All who plan to attend are asked to RSVP to Executive Secretary Cathi Castillo at

The 34th annual Staff Appreciation and Recognition Holiday Luncheon for Classified Staff, hosted by President Christian and sponsored by Campus Auxiliary Services and the Office of the President, will take place in the Student Union Multipurpose Room at 12 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 13.
