I try to plan a couple of activities each semester. In the past these have included a play at a local theater, a Binghamton Met's game, an ice hockey game, a visit to Howes Caverns, or a visit to Cooperstown. A lot depends on the interest of the current NSE students. I also have a welcome dinner for you to meet each other. Due to budget restraints, I have to charge a $25 activity fee per semester. This can be paid after you arrive. I prefer a check or money order made out to Binghamton University/NSE, but will accept cash if absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, I cannot accept charge cards at all. No student will be able to attend an NSE function if this fee has not been paid.
