“I think it’s an excellent example of collaboration and team effort together with the Athletics Department to show our support for our student-athletes,” said Greg Steele, assistant director of Mountainview College. “It also gives our Mountainview College Council and our Learning Communities an opportunity to showcase everything we do. Sodexo will put on a great barbecue and introduce a specialty menu item with the Bearcat Burger. Overall, it exemplifies the sense of community that we have so much pride for at this Binghamton.”
