The lecture will be based on his recently published book of the same title. Oppenheimer, editor of the New Haven Advocate, holds a doctorate in religious history from Yale University.
Rental vehicle use required
The two vehicles remaining in the campus passenger vehicle/full size van fleet will be retired Nov. 1. This will bring the campus into alignment with SUNY Cen-tral’s “Travel Guidelines and Policies” which encourages the use of rental vehicles for travel. As a result, the University has teamed with the state contractor, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, for vehicle rental.
