ONEONTA — A SUNY Oneonta student died in his off-campus residence Thursday night, according to college officials.


Mark DeRoziere, 22, of Schoharie was found unresponsive by another SUNY Oneonta student sometime after 9 p.m. yesterday at an East Street apartment, according to a SUNY Oneonta media release. The Oneonta police and emergency personnel from the Oneonta Fire Department responded to the apartment, where DeRoziere, a junior at the college, was declared dead.

  • April activities abound at Thanksgiving Home There were many April fool jokes played here at Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home on April 1. Some of us found our door name plates turned upside down or swapped with one from another door and furniture and objects were mysteriously moved around in our rooms. The dining room was completely transformed from its usual formal setting into a hodpodge of mismatched china and … horrors, plastic tablecloths and paper napkins. Each table was decorated with a different theme, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter. Christmas carols played in the background. We suspect that Dee Bouck, of Personal Care and John Santello, Activities Director, were mainly responsible for this mayhem.
