After an exciting four years in EMHS, Scott started the State University of New York at Binghamton (Binghamton University).
This page outlines the clubs, activities, and classes that Scott was involved with over
his four-\ year college career. Make sure to visit the links provided for more insight.

For two years, Scott lived on campus in the Hinman College dormitory quad
(in Cleveland Hall). Hinman offers a unique suite living arrangement, a very
supportive staff, and a wonderful sense of community. Many of his friends lived
on his floor at one point. During his Sophomore year, Scott met Rebecca, who
lived down the hall. Thanks, Hinman!

Hinman Production Company
One of the first activities that Scott became involved with as a Freshman
was the Hinman Production Company, a student-run community theatre group located
in the Hinman Commons. The Hinman Production Company offers a wonderful
opportunity for students to get involved in campus theatre without devoting
their lives to Mainstage. The HPC family is a dedicated group of students with a
long tradition. The Spring 2001 semester is HPC's thirtieth anniversary season,
and a special event is being planned!
For two years, Scott was the President of the
Hinman Production Company, and loved working with the E-Board. Scott has also been responsible for the purchase, reconditioning,
and installation of lighting equipment; and has been the resident lighting
designer since his initial involvement in 1998. HPC's Fall 2001 show was Once
Upon A Mattress and the Spring 2002 musical was Hair.

Dickinson Community Players
Similar to the Hinman Production Company is another student-run campus theatre
group, Dickinson Community Players. D.C. Players is lucky enough to have an
actual stage area and some more professional equipment. Scott was the Technical
Director of D.C. Players for two years. He purchased and oversaw the
installation of a new lighting system during the Fall 2000 semester. For
the first time in four years, Scott was actually in a D.C. Players
show! He played the part of "Greg" in last semester's spring's musical, A

The Binghamton Crosbys
The Binghamton Crosbys are Binghamton's only all-male a cappella group. The Crosbys,
"SUNY-B's singing ambassadors," are a nationally ranked and renowned
organization that performs a wide variety of music. In addition to two major
"jamborees" every year, the Crosbys sing at many on- and off-campus
events throughout the school year. In January, the Crosbys tour the metropolitan
New York area and perform at dozens of schools, hotels, and other venues. Scott
had been a part of the Crosbys since his first week in college. He sang Tenor I
and was the 2000-2001 Tour/Business Manager. He appears on the Crosbys' album, Songs
in the Key of Nishole, as well as the latest hit release, Crosbys 101. Last
April the Crosbys advanced to the International Finals of A Cappella at Lincoln
Center in New York City, and Scott had the opportunity to sing the solo for one
of the songs in the competition set. Being
a part of the Crosbys has been an incredible experience that has had a major
impact on his college life. To view pictures, videos, and read information on
the Crosbys, please see the website listed below.

Hillel/JSU and Kosher Kitchen
One of the most unique dining experiences at Binghamton is the Kosher Kitchen.
The Kitchen ("KK") is not just a dining alternative for those wishing
to keep kosher - it is a family and a social circle. Being a member requires you
to work one two-hour shift per week. For two years, Scott set up the salad bar
on Monday mornings. Since he has moved off campus, Scott now has the job of
"machines" which takes him half an hour. Scott's claim to fame in the
Kosher Kitchen is his menu-board design skills! Known for having the neatest
handwriting on this side of the Atlantic, Scott frequently wastes time creating
wet-erase masterpieces (LOL) with the menu. It's hard to decide where to sit in
the Kitchen because your friends are taking up many tables! Many of the KK
members are also Hillel/JSU members; Scott was the Hillel webmaster.
Scott was a History Major in Harpur College of Arts and Sciences. He was also a
Management Adjunct (Management Information Systems) with the School of
Management. Needless to say, Scott had a lot of requirements to fulfill and was always
overloading his already-busy schedule. Scott had been fortunate to have had some
wonderful professors at Binghamton who have contributed to his education. As an
elective, Scott studied Yiddish with Mr. Jack Weinstein for six semesters. He
also frequently seen around the Theatre and Music Departments, and was in the
Theatre 101 Rep Company. He had been the T.A. for Yiddish and a tutor for M.I.S.
with the School of Management.

During the Fall 2000 semester, Scott became involved with OCC's J.C. Mentor
Program. He interned in the C. Fred Johnson Middle School mentoring fifth
graders on the 5-2 Team. In the Spring of 2001, Scott worked as an intern in
Kevin Strahley's seventh grade social studies classes. This was a very rewarding experience and Scott recommends
the program to anyone.
In November 2000, Scott had the idea of starting a drama club at
the school, since there was no existing extracurricular theater program. The
idea was embraced by students and faculty with open arms, and Scott organized
the C. Fred Drama Club the next week. Auditions were held over a two week period
and You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown was cast with 33 students, in
addition to several backstage helpers. Rehearsals went well and the April show
was highly received in the community. Scott directed the show and ran the
program as an OCC internship during the Spring 2001 semester and ran the Drama Program again during the 2001-2002 school year, directing Oliver!
this past spring.

Tour Guide/Admissions Staff
Scott was hired as a Binghamton University Tour Guide in 2000. He thoght it was
the best job on campus and loved giving tours to prospective students and
parents. Scott was found touring a few days a week when he had no classes. Scott also designed the university's Parent Relations
website for the Alumni Office.

Scott was a substitute teacher for the Binghamton City School District. Although getting called
for work at 6:00 AM doesn't sound appealing, Scott loved this job and found it
rewarding. He has subbed for a variety of teachers and classes... nearly every
class in the district, I think!
