University at Albany, SUNY, is a public university located in the capital of New York state, and is the senior campus of the SUNY system. The University was founded in 1844 in Albany, New York, and has three campuses; the Uptown and Downtown Campuses in the city of Albany and one campus in the town of East Greenbush, just east of Albany. The officially designated informal name is "UAlbany", but the university is sometimes referred to by locals, outsiders, oldtimers and alumni as Albany, Albany State, SUNY Albany, SUNY A. or just plain SUNY. It began as a normal school in the mid-19th century and evolved into a State University Center by the middle of the 20th. In 2001, it was designated a State Center of Excellence for nanotechnology and subsequently has seen a large investment from both the State and from industry. The University hosts the only School of Public Health in SUNY (in conjunction with Wadsworth labs), two SUNY-wide research centers - the Atmospheric Science Research Center, and the Center for International Studies and World Affairs.

Campuses

Uptown Campus

The front of UAlbany's Uptown Campus, overlooking Collins Circle

The main (Uptown) campus, located at 1400 Washington Ave., is modernist in style, designed by world renowned architect Edward Durell Stone and based on a symmetrical plan. Since its opening in the mid 1960's, the Uptown campus has evoked strong responses. As University at Albany Professor of English and art critic Thomson Littlefield noted in the Times Union in 1967: “The place is so huge, so imposing, so beset with illusion, so far out of this world, that people are blinded to the actual, at least until they have looked assiduously for a very long while. A glance at the University is like a glance at the sun.” As recently as September 2006, a UAlbany student defended his campus in a letter to the editor of the Times Union. “The entire campus is a work of art – and I am not the artsy type,” he wrote in response to the opinion that the campus is unsightly. However prior to the Fall 2007 semester the Princeton Review listed the UAlbany campus as the #1 "Campus Is Tiny, Unsightly, or Both" as well as #10 on the list "Dorms Like Dungeons."

The campus exemplifies the signature style Edward Durell Stone used in his major projects between 1954 and 1970, including the United States Embassy in New Delhi, India; the Hotel Phoenicia in Beirut, Lebanon; the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.; 2 Columbus Circle in Manhattan, NYC; and the Aon Center, originally the Standard Oil Building, in Chicago. The academic buildings are located on the monolithic "Podium", a huge rectangular structure in the center of campus. The podium on which Stone clustered the academic buildings brought the disciplines together in a unified way, giving them all the same architecture and connecting them through stairways and walkways. Living and learning went hand in hand, with dormitories built within walking distance of classroom spaces. In the original design, automobiles were relegated to the perimeter of the campus. The Podium's architectural centerpiece is the "Carillon", a tall, cylindrical carillon that electronically emulates the sound of the original 15th century mechanical design. By employing various musical patterns, it is used to signal the beginning of hourly scheduled classes. At the base of the carillon is a large fountain, which is perhaps the most well recognized and appreciated feature of the campus. The Kennedy Center as seen from the Potomac River. ...

On the west end of the Uptown Campus is the Albany Nanotech facility. The 450,000 square foot, $3.5 billion facility is comprised of three buildings. NanoFab 200, also known as CESTM (Center for Environmental Science and Technology Management) houses a majority of the metrology or characterization tools, the National Weather Service (NWS), the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC), the 200mm clean rooms, and various labs and offices. NanoFab 300 North houses the only 300mm processing line in the academic world, as well as a massive cleanroom for industrial R&D. NanoFab 300 South houses the academic offices of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, classrooms, a caferteria, offices, labs, and an additional cleanroom in the annex (NanoFab 300X). A fourth building (NanoFab 300 East) is set to open in 2008 and will hold additional lab, office, and cleanroom space.


Uptown Campus Housing

The Uptown Campus is home to six of the university's seven dormitory complexes. Four of these—Indian Quad, Dutch Quad, Colonial Quad, and State Quad—sit at the Podium's corners; each consists of eight three-story low-rise buildings encircling a 22-story tower with a total capacity of 1,200 students each. The four quads serve as a chronological timeline of New York State history, beginning with Indian Quad, moving clockwise to Dutch, then Colonial, and finally, State. The other two, Freedom Quad and Empire Commons, are reserved for juniors, seniors, graduate students (Empire only), or married couples; these are "apartment-style" and include kitchens, furnished living rooms, and on Empire: washers, dryers, dishwashers, single bedrooms, central air conditioning. Students living on Empire's E block (E1-E3) have the previously mentioned amenities along with private bathrooms (one in each bedroom).


The Uptown Campus is also home to two of the university's three libraries, the University Library and the Science Library.


Downtown Campus

The Downtown Campus, located at 135 Western Ave., is the site of the original New York State College for Teachers. Construction began in 1909 on the first three buildings: Draper, Husted and Hawley halls, after the previous location on Willett Street burned down. Later additions to the campus were Richardson Hall, Page Hall and The Milne School (all in 1929), along with additions to Draper and Richardson halls (both in the 1960s). The Milne School was the campus laboratory school in Albany, New York, for what is now known as the University at Albany, State University of New York. ...


The Downtown Campus is home to the University's Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, School of Criminal Justice, College of Computing and Information, and School of Social Welfare. The Downtown Campus is also home to one of the University's three libraries, the Thomas E. Dewey Graduate Library, located in Hawley Hall. Thomas Edmund Dewey (March 24, 1902 – March 16, 1971) was the Governor of New York (1943-1954) and the unsuccessful Republican candidate for the U.S. Presidency in 1944 and 1948. ...

History

The University was chartered in 1844 as a normal school, charged with the task of training teachers as part of the Common School movement. The teachers' college joined with dozens of other state-run institutions of higher learning across New York with the founding of the State University of New York system in 1948. In 1962 the University at Albany was officially designated a doctoral-degree granting University Center by Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller. The same year, Rockefeller broke ground for the current main campus of the University on the former site of the Albany Country Club.

In 1974, the team finished 9-0, the school's only undefeated season. Ford has compiled a 35-year varsity record of 216-139, while his 225 career victories ranks second among active NCAA Division I-AA head coaches.

The team finished over 10 victories in only two seasons. However, in the 2005-06 campaign, the Great Danes compiled a 21-11 season.

This forced the Great Danes to travel to Vermont, who was the #1 seed for the conference championship, where they were previously 0-7.


The Great Danes, considered underdogs, would not falter. On March 10, 2007, the men's basketball team won their second consecutive America East title beating Vermont 60-59 in the conference final on a last second steal by Carl Ross and Brent Wilson. The Great Danes would be seeded 13th in the South Division of the 2007 NCAA Division I Tournament, and lost to the 4th seed Virginia Cavaliers 84-57 in the first round in Columbus, Ohio.

Prior to the conclusion of the 2006-2007 season, the men's basketball program retired the number 31 of player Jamar Wilson. Wilson finished his career as the school’s all-time scorer with 2,164 points, plus ranked second in assists with 488. Wilson became the first player in school history to score 500 points or more in three different seasons. He also shattered the school standard with 620 points in a season, breaking a record set by Jason Graber in 1993-94. He would also win two America East Player of the Year Awards, something only three other people in conference history had achieved. Many believe that his commitment to the university is part of the early Division I success of UAlbany's men's basketball program. No athlete in the program's history has had their number retired prior. 31 (thirty-one) is the natural number following 30 and preceding 32. ...


The Great Danes success has brought national attention. The program has participated in ESPN's BraketBuster series in 2005-06 (at Virginia Commonwealth) and 2006-07 (at Boise St.), both of which were shown on one of ESPN's family of networks.

College of the Empire State,
Mother of an army great,
Thou the molder of our fate,
Thee we sing today.
Thine the hand with clasp so strong,
Holding tho' the years be long,
Thou the burden of our song,
Thee we sing today.


Ways of pleasantness are thine,
Leading where in wisdom's shrine,
Joy and cheer, and hope divine,
Ever dwell for aye.
Thine the voice whose call we hear,
Thine the hand which holds us near,
Thine the heart, so true, so dear,
Cherished, loved alway.


Wisdom's duty heeds thy call,
Ever in Minerva's thrall,
Pass the torch from one to all,
Guide each destiny.
'Neath the Purple and the Gold,
Let thy history unfold,
Sons and daughters, young and old,
Long live the struggle strong
Hail to Albany.

  • In academic years ending in 1998 and 2004, the Princeton Review ranked UAlbany as "The #1 Party School in America". In 2005 the dubious honor was taken by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This ranking is contested by the University, and many students, who claim that the ranking is based upon a non-scientific survey, and that the reality of the school is more academic. The way that the survey is taken is by going into one freshman sociology class and asking the students how many times they drink in a week. Generally speaking, the survey is taken after the school’s “fountain day” which is described in another section of this article. By only asking the freshman students at SUNY Albany at the strategic time of the year that they take the survey, and only asking the junior students at other universities the Princeton survey can skew their article to get a better desired result and henceforth sell more copies of their book. The school has done much to change that image, and the latest survey ranks Albany as the number 20 party school in the country.[1]
  • On the University Seal is Minerva, the Roman goddess of crafts and wisdom. But because Minerva was also identified with the Greek goddess Athena, she also became the goddess of war and victory. This famous statue was purchased in 1888 and rescued by Charles Wurtham (a custodian) from a devastating fire in the college's administrative offices. This seven-foot, white plaster landmark of the University at Albany is on display in the Science Library foyer (Uptown Campus). While there is no official record of where the statue of Minerva came from, it is reported that she was purchased with funds from a $1 student fee collected for make-up exams.

  • The University also hosts a Relay For Life, an American Cancer Society Benefit. UAlbany has hosted it for 3 years now. Last year over 1,200 students, faculty, and community member participated raising over $97,000. This year the Relay For Life is set to be held on April 5-6, 2008.
