With the HWS students using virtual teaching that would mean that the water usage for HWS would decline

Your water and sewer rates may increase

Is there anyone who looks across the forums and wonders if Bluezone does anything but comment on forums?

Will HWS have to close?

Hobart and William Smith Colleges President Joyce P. Jacobsen outlines the steps they are taking to address significant budget questions heading into the 2020-21 academic year.

“Moving forward we anticipate a substantial FY2021 budget deficit directly related to the pandemic if we do not take steps to correct for it now,”


We anticipate a $10.5M budget deficit under the in-person instruction scenario, and the deficits rise substantially from that point based on the extent to which we must move to more remote learning.”

employees see a 7.7% pay reduction or four weeks of furlough and

Overall reduction of employer retirement contribution from 10% down to 5%

Mayor sees 'cataclysmic trouble' if Cornell and Ithaca College do not reopen campuses this fall

The mayor of Ithaca, New York, told CNBC that the city's economy faces dire consequences if local colleges do not hold in-person classes this fall due to the coronavirus.
"If the students don't come back in the fall, we're in real cataclysmic trouble," Svante Myrick said on "Squawk on the Street."

It will be one way to measure the spin-off benefits of the colleges. Not a good time to be opening a bar or pizzeria.

And yet HWS cut their employees pay by about 7.7%

Largest Fundraising Year in Hobart and William Smith History
By Hobart and William Smith Colleges on June 29th, 2020
Thanks to the support of donors across the Hobart and William Smith community, this year the Colleges have achieved a new record – the largest fundraising year in Hobart and William Smith history. New gifts and commitments for fiscal year 2020, which ended on May 31, have exceeded $27 million.

“Philanthropic support to the Colleges is essential to the continued success of our students, faculty and staff, and an important signal from our graduates and parents of the increasing value of the HWS experience,” says Vice President for Advancement Bob O’Connor P’22. “These gifts and commitments drive innovative academic work, enable students to pursue internships and study abroad, and enrich everything from athletics to campus clubs. With unprecedented support from across the breadth of our community and key commitments from several members of the Board of Trustees, we are inspired and tremendously grateful.”

All-time records were broken in other categories including annual giving at $6.9 million and athletics fundraising, which set both donor and dollar records. During Athletics Day of Donors in February, HWS saw more donors contribute more dollars for Statesmen and Herons teams in a single day than ever before.

“I join Bob in thanking everyone who made a gift to the Colleges,” says President Joyce P. Jacobsen. “In my first year as president, this support is particularly meaningful and demonstrates a high level of confidence in our trajectory. I’m especially grateful to Bob and his team for all of their hard work to make it happen and in their skill in communicating to our donors the powerful value of a Hobart and William Smith education.”

“The work of the Colleges’ Advancement team over the past year has been outstanding,” says HWS Board Chair Thomas S. Bozzuto ’68, L.H.D. ’18. “Their efforts and the contributions of our alumni, alumnae, parents and friends will have a remarkable and concrete impact on the lives of students, faculty and staff far into the future. On behalf of the Board, I congratulate everyone on this incredible fundraising year.”

Yes, but they are still employed, with health care... more than many employed in the tourism sector can say.

Is that because the geneva taxpayers are indirectly subsidizing HWS?

I don't know that it's "because" of an indirect subsidy any more than we subsidize NYSEG, or Guardian, or, for that matter, the tourism sector. We elect politicians, they vote on various issues, and we live with the results.

Would you prefer that HWS remain 'closed' to students for an extended amount of time?

Canandaigua and Victor do well without a private college
