Discover Day With The Cup | Colin Patterson
The NHL highlighted a former Clarkson hockey player's role in Stanley Cup history during last weekend's playoff games! Colin Patterson was a Golden Knights forward from 1980 to 1983 (Clarkson was first in the league in 80-81 and 81-82); by the end of the decade, he and the Calgary Flames had won the Stanley Cup.

(YOU)KNIGHT with Jason Cocca!
Jason Cocca '14 noticed one night while studying on campus that the lights in many empty classrooms were still on. The observation prompted him to write a proposal for motion-sensor room lights that have since been installed throughout campus, an investment that will pay itself off over the next several years and was made possible in part through the generosity of alumni. Watch Jason's story below and find more stories and ways to get involved at our page for recent alumni, (YOU)KNIGHT! http://bit.ly/10R23Iu
After hitting the books in a Clarkson classroom one evening, Jason Cocca turned off the lights and headed down the hallway. Noticing that lights were still b...
