Mariana Winnik and Melissa Danowski, both elementary education majors, discuss books with fourth-grade students visiting SUNY Oneonta on a field trip to learn about college life, Oct. 30, 2014 at 4:19 pm. About two dozen fourth-graders from two magnet schools in Amsterdam, NY, toured classrooms, athletic facilities and a residence hall, and had a snack at Mills Dining Hall. Two of the students’ teachers are alumni of the college’s education program. “A lot of them didn’t even know what a college looked like. It’s been a big eye opener,” said Jennifer Towne, a 2009 Oneonta graduate who teaches fourth grade at McNulty Academy. “A lot of these kids’ families have never been to college,” said Dale Comley, a 2013 graduate who now teaches at Tecler elementary school. “These kids don’t even realize they could go to college, so it’s been a good partnership.” The visit ended at the children’s room of the Milne Library, where more than a dozen education students gave book talks and answered questions about college.<br />
