Onondaga Community College’s newest buildings are receiving high marks for their environmental features. The Academic II building and the SRC Arena and Events Center received the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council Tuesday morning. Being certified by the U.S. Green Building Council means that the building design and construction met specific green building criteria.

  The moment my dear wife Karen and I stepped out of our car and looked toward the SRC Arena on the campus of Onondaga Community College about 15 minutes after 4 on Saturday afternoon, we knew that the organizers of Benny's Lost 80's Bash had decided to set the stage up inside instead of out.

Veterans and their families gathered at the War Memorial Tuesday for a celebration and honoring of their service. Carol Anne Wood is the grandmother of a woman currently serving in the U-S Army.  She would write poems for her granddaughter and the platoon, and quickly became known as the platoon grandmother.

Unfortunately not all service members are able to return to their families and communities. A special table was set up to honor those Missing in Action or who are Prisoners of War.
