Halford Hall

The college is adorning all of the places on campus with golden ribbons that were named for or sponsored by SUNY Canton patrons for Giving Tuesday. Pictured are Halford Hall, named in honor of 1949 Alumnus John L. Halford, Sr., and the statue of Former Men’s Hockey Coach Terry Martin outside of the Roos House Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center.

“Thanks to past support, this year we’ve awarded more than $460,000 in scholarships to 291 students,” noted Anne M. Sibley, vice president for advancement. “Faculty, staff and students are receiving almost $50,000 for special projects and professional development. We want to thank everyone who makes this possible.”
