Check in here for news about events, past and upcoming, put on by SAGA. We currently only have one unified virtual SAGA group, but we usually meet on both campuses and therefore hold our events on both campuses.
In addition to a variety of events, fundraisers, walks, and educational talks, SAGA holds the college's annual Lavender Graduation to recognize and celebrate the achievements of and contributions to the college by our LGBTQ+ students, and acknowledge that they’ve successfully completed their time at SUNY Orange, a huge step in their academic journeys. Lavender Graduation is open to all graduating LGBTQ+ students at SUNY Orange, and we specifically recognize the students of SAGA who have worked to better their environment and the college community for the students that will come after them.
The first Lavender Graduation at SUNY Orange was in 2019, at the urging of the students in that year's SAGA group, and has since not been held on campus. We look forward to a virtual Lavender Graduation in 2021 to celebrate our students in the LGBTQ+ community.
