Another virtual event: Binghamton University 2020 Homecoming

first_imgInstead, it’s hosting digital, interactive events like a 5K, campus tours, trivia games, and an award ceremony over a week-long period. The Alumni Association felt like it couldn’t cancel homecoming all together. But like many other 2020 events, this year, it’s going virtual. For a full schedule of events or to register for homecoming, click here. “People have screen fatigue, so we didn’t want to do it over three days and have six videos, you say nobody will sit and watch it, it’s really too much,” said Seepersaud. VESTAL (WBNG) — Each fall, Binghamton University welcomes its alumni back on to campus for homecoming. “You can be on a computer, you can be on a smart device, you can participate from anywhere,” said Seepersaud. “When you look at the people who come to homecoming, you get a lot of new faces and a lot that come back year after year. But the one thing in common is they all come from a driving radius of about three to five hours.” “That may be a great way to pull them in, and then more importantly, what do we do with them after? You keep them connected,” said Seepersaud. “I think that had we canceled and said, ‘Let’s wait until 2021,’ it would have been an opportunity lost for us but also for those who look forward to having that sense of wanting to connect back to us,” said Seepersaud. It’s an opportunity to engage more alum in the long-term, too. A virtual homecoming has its perks. It’s able to reach more alumni than just those who would have traveled to campus. So when homecoming does return to campus, the turnout may be better than ever. “We wanted to build pride and bring people together and celebrate all the great things going on at Binghamton, and we know that alumni pride doesn’t go away during a pandemic, thank goodness,” said Binghamton University Advancement Communications Manager Steve Seepersaud.last_img read more

A storybook year: Doug Barron reflects on 2019 DICK’s Open win

first_imgBarron said he used some time off earlier this year when play was paused to have surgery on his knee. Right now, he is competing in the Senior Players Championship in Akron, Ohio. The win marked the 13th time a qualifier took home a trophy on the PGA Tour Champions. It was also Barron’s first Tour Champions win. Barron was looking forward to his return to En-Joie Golf Club this summer. “I’m there for the rest of my professional career. After this career is over I’m done with golf so I hope I’ll see ya’ll for ten or 12 years,” he said. Then the rain came, which Barron said worked in his favor. (WBNG) — On August 18, 2019 Doug Barron won the DICK’s Sporting Goods Open as a Monday qualifier. As he reflects on the past year, he calls it a “storybook ending.” “It’s a fun week the people in Broome County are amazing,” said Barron. “I feel like I fit in perfect up there.” “It was an unforgettable moment for a guy whose kind of been a journeyman,” said Barron. “It was actually a nice relief, because I saw Jay Haas, I went and hung out with him, it was actually me him Freddie, Woody Austin,” said Barron. Barron says he’ll be returning to the course for years to come. “I think about that shot I hit on 18, that shot I hit on 17 and I think about the walk up to 18. And I think about that trophy,” he said. “When we came around to fifteen, it was starting to set in that I was doing pretty good,” he said. When Barron looks back at the weekend, a few moments stick out. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter. Barron led for most of the weekend and finished two strokes ahead of Fred Couples in a wire-to-wire finish. “When we went back out and played I only had three and a half holes left, where I had driven it on 15 and I told my wife, ‘look, I got this.’ And I did,” he said. After the rain delay, Barron sunk two fifteen-foot birdie putts pushing him to victory. last_img read more
