Governor Hochul directs flags to half-staff to honor fallen Trooper Robert M. Burney

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced flags on state buildings will be flown at half-staff on December 14, from sunrise to sunset, in honor of fallen New York State Police Trooper Robert M. Burney.  

"Trooper Robert M. Burney answered the call to protect and defend and spent almost three decades serving his fellow New Yorkers," Governor Hochul said. "May Trooper Burney's memory be a comfort to his family, and may his legacy live on in the lives he touched in the line of duty. His loved ones are in our hearts as we mourn their loss."  On December 9, 2023, Trooper Burney passed away from an illness stemming from his assignment in and around the world trade center site following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. He had retired from the New York State Police after 27 years of dedicated service on January 2, 2017. Trooper Burney was from New Hartford and is survived by his long-term companion, his mother and extended family.

Intensive Study Hours

I hope this finds you well and the end of the semester is going smoothly for you! I am sending this email as a reminder that Intensive Study Hours have start Sunday December 3 at 8:00 PM and last until the end of the semester, 10:00 PM on December 15th.  Intensive Study Hours were implemented to make sure that the residence halls are quiet, so students are able to better focus on preparing for finals and completing final projects in the last two weeks.  The important information can be found below:

  • Intensive Study Hours begin Sunday, December 3 at 8 PM and last until December 15.
  • Intensive Study Hours include the weekends.   
  • Intensive Study Hours are perpetual quiet hours with a relief period from 4PM- 7Pm.  This means that regular hours are from 4 PM-7Pm each day and outside of that time period, quiet hours will be enforced.
  • No overnight guests and guests after 10 PM
  • This email and the flyers around the building count as your warning. 
  • A first violation will result in the situation being documented, and you will receive a hand delivered letter that night that you have your first violation and that a second violation will result in relocation. 
  • A second violation will result in relocation from the residence hall and you will move into another spot on campus for the rest of the semester and you would not be allowed back into your regular residence hall until you are done with finals to grab any items you would need for back home/ return anything from your temporary assignment that you would not need to bring home over break.
