The five-story, $10 million, 46,000 square foot building is the first new classroom space built on the SUNY Upstate campus in nearly three decades, and it will provide one of most contemporary settings for medical education, especially the teaching of clinical skills.
The building is named for Jules '35 and Rose Setnor and Rose's brother, Stanford '42, whose $3 million lead gift has helped ensure the building's state-of-the-art design. Funding from New York state and SUNY Upstate's capital budget and other alumni contributions have supported the building's construction.
A blog about Upstate's outstanding students and faculty
Anne Reilley, a student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, was elected president of Upstate Student Government for 2013-2014. Anne said she wants to get the most out of her experience as a student, and serving as USG president will help accomplish that.
“It's exciting, especially since I'm going into my last year (of the three-year DPT program)”, Anne said. “USG is a go-to forum for student voices. Students can address issues, anonymously if they prefer, and their concerns will be brought to the administration.”
Anne, who has a master's degree in exercise science from SUNY Cortland, is the first student from outside of the College of Medicine to be elected to the one-year post. She also was one of 10 students chosen to give a presentation at Student Research Day 2013.— With Distinction blog>
