A glossy four-color magazine, “Carillon” (pronounced "CARE-i-lon") is among the latest outreach efforts initiated by SUNY Orange to deliver a broad range of news and information about the College. Produced by the SUNY Orange Office of Institutional Advancement, nearly 19,000 copies of “Carillon” are being mailed to those alumni, faculty, staff, donors and friends for whom the College has a valid address. Additionally, copies will be placed liberally on campus for viewing by students and visitors, and the magazine will also be available as an interactive publication on the College’s web site.

“We are very excited about this publication because it truly reflects the diversity of the College’s students, programs and services,” said Vinnie Cazzetta, vice president for institutional advancement. “We felt it was important for the College to have a publication of this caliber that would reach those people who have a vested interest in the College. And as the magazine circulates, it should serve as an impressive introduction for those folks who may know little or nothing about SUNY Orange. I also believe it will allow us to re-connect with our alumni in a very positive way.”

In each of the past three years, the College has produced “Learning Alive,” a 20-page magazine devoted almost exclusively to the academic affairs division and distributed primarily on campus. “Carillon” merges “Learning Alive” with recent alumni newsletters in a new 24-page format dedicated to highlighting stories from virtually all corners of campus. The magazine is named after the electronic carillon that chimes from atop stately Morrison Hall every half hour. The campus carillon, which also tolls during Commencement and other significant on-campus events, was jointly donated to the College on June 12, 1982, by the Alumni, College and Student associations.

Alumna Kim Marie (Kozaczek) Boylan ’79 is highlighted on the cover and featured inside. Boylan, raised in the Orange County hamlet of Middle Hope, is currently a partner in the tax division of the Washington, D.C., office of Latham and Watkins, an international law firm with 27 offices worldwide.

Profiles on architectural technology instructor Pam Rice-Woytowick ’98 and music student Carlton Jay are accompanied by stories detailing recent security upgrades in Middletown, the College’s 2009 Commencement and the Newburgh campus project. A section of “briefs” adds to the magazine’s news content. “The Final Bell,” a one-page historical feature on former College President Dr. Robert Novak written by archivist Mary Ann Van Benschoten, occupies the magazine’s final page.

“We have so many good success stories here at SUNY Orange, and this new publication is a wonderful way for us to tell them,” added Dr. William Richards, SUNY Orange president. “In addition to being a beautiful magazine visually, the content truly tells the story of the College’s ability to serve as a launching pad for professional success and personal triumph.”

While not touted as an “alumni” magazine, “Carillon” is similar to alumni magazines distributed by many two- and four-year colleges. One significant difference is that, rather than highlighting a section of alumni notes, “Carillon” devotes three pages to a donor recognition section on behalf of the SUNY Orange Foundation, as well as a one-page outline of the College’s Defining Moments Capital Campaign.

Aside from several photos of Boylan taken in Washington, D.C., “Carillon” is a true Hudson Valley production. Goshen graphic artist Marc Tolen, of Creative Graphics, designed the magazine while the principal photography was handled by Newburgh professional Nihal Mahawaduge. Maar Printing, of Poughkeepsie, printed the issue on “mixed source” environmentally friendly paper produced under guidelines set forth by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). SUNY Orange Director of Communications Mike Albright served as executive editor and writer.
