Amsterdam’s Wilbur H. Lynch Literacy Academy Students Visit UAlbany Campus

Albany, NY (November 7, 2012) - More than 300 seventh and eighth grade students from the Wilbur H. Lynch Literacy Academy in Amsterdam, NY, along with parents and teachers, toured the University at Albany campus as guests of the School of Education in October.

Many of the teachers who helped plan the visit, including the current school principal Helen Stuetzel who was recipient of the UAlbany Alumni Association’s Bertha E. Brimmer Medal in 2009, are graduates of the School. The tour was designed to introduce the students to the concept of higher education and establish a path to pursue a college education.  Students visited athletic facilities where they heard from student athletes, a dorm setting in State Quad, as well as a dining hall, the Campus Center, Science Library, and Lecture Center.
