ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR) — SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras encouraged college students to get vaccinated by promising a “more traditional” experience for those who get their shot. Malatras wrote in an op-ed for USA Today network.

Malatras wrote: 

“Over the last two months, I’ve watched students cross the commencement stage beaming with pride, joy, and optimism. There’s a palpable energy in the air, a real sense of hope and healing. Let’s not go back, let’s move forward. We control our fate.”
