Binghamton University Reaches Out to Those Affected By Hurricane

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Many of those who live in some of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy have ties to Binghamton University.

Members of the campus community will be joining forces to try to provide some assistance to those who’ve experienced losses because of the storm.

University president Harvey Stenger says a letter has been sent to all alumni in the New York City metropolitan area advising them that efforts will be made to provide help to those in need.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program Friday, Stenger said information has been placed in the Community Engagement section of the university’s website listing student groups that are organizing activities to help those affected by the hurricane.

Stenger said there are about 46,000 Binghamton alumni in the New York City metro area.

The university president noted about half of the school’s students are from that region.

Stenger said steps have been taken to provide assistance to students whose families are in the area devastated by the storm.

Counseling hours have been extended because many students want an opportunity to talk about what’s happened.

Stenger said the university is not encouraging students to go home because being at school is probably the safest place for them to be right now.
