College at Brockport Broadcasts First Live Web Event

Virtual Meeting Reaches National Audience

Brockport, NY – President John R. Halstead today updated more than 150 alumni, volunteer board members, and other friends of The College at Brockport, State University of New York, during Brockport’s first live web broadcast. President Halstead was joined by Dr. Daniel Petree, dean of the School of Business Administration and Economics, and Kerry Gotham, director of alumni relations.

The 20-minute broadcast was watched online by visitors in 13 states and gave College officials a venue to highlight campus news and answer questions submitted by the online audience.

“This is an exciting, spontaneous way to reach people who can’t normally get to the College and share with them recent campus happenings,” said Halstead. “One of the pleasant benefits was the many side conversations taking place in the online chat room among old friends, some of whom hadn’t connected in years.”

The College expects to broadcast another live web event February 13, with details to come closer to the event.
