Meet the Admissions Team

This is Jay

Jay Beckwith

Hello!  I am Jonathan Beckwith, but I go by Jay. I am originally from Edmeston, NY, but have moved around in New York. I grew up in a military family, later serving in the military myself. I love to meet new people, which is something that I love about being in the Office of Admissions. 

I graduated from SUNY Oneonta in 2018 with a Bachelors degree in History. After graduation I went on to further my education and obtained my Masters Degree in Museum Studies. After separating from the military, I was unsure about what I wanted to do as a career. Through some trial and error, I essentially fell into an admissions position and never looked back. I enjoy helping people further their careers and meeting the goals that each person sets for themselves.

On my off time I enjoy playing many sports, spending time with family and being outdoors. I love to travel, and have many places on my list that I hopefully want to make it to one day.

I am from Clifton Park, NY, and earned my Bachelor Degree in Visual Communications from Cazenovia College.

I visit students from the Northeastern region of New York. One of the many hats I wear in the Admissions Office is managing our Tour Guide program. This area of my job is very rewarding because I have the opportunity to know the students on a personal level. I assist them in finding internships and jobs and learn more about their specific majors through their adventures in class. I have watched many students grow professionally, graduate, and jump into their careers. I am always proud to watch the students who work in our office walk across the stage during graduation.

SUNY Morrisville is a hidden gem in the middle of the state where you can find students delivering foals, making cheese curd and ice cream, growing lettuce through aquaponics, rebuilding transmissions, and creating new computer games. Many more of these adventures are offered through the diverse programs offered at SUNY Morrisville.

I enjoy being outdoors, golfing, hiking, gardening, camping. I love spending time with my husband and two boys.

Daniel Goldman

My name is Dan Goldman and I am the Admissions and Workforce Development Coordinator at the SUNY Morrisville Norwich Campus. I am originally from another SUNY town, New Paltz, NY, and have lived in Central New York for over eight years.

I graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sport Studies in 2008. I was unsure of what I wanted to pursue as a career and after working in the sports field for a year, I realized I wanted to change direction and find a career when I can help young adults find a path in life that they enjoy and love. I have been working with young adults for over 10 years and have held several positions providing counseling and advice to students enrolled in education and, when ready, looking to enter the workforce. I will bring my extensive knowledge of career and workforce development to you at SUNY Morrisville and will help you with whatever your needs are to pursue a career using your degree. I am so happy and excited to be working at SUNY Morrisville Norwich Campus and I look forward to meeting students and helping them achieve their goals.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching and playing almost every sport and being in the great outdoors.

Born and raised in the trees of the Hudson Valley, I transferred to the rolling hills of SUNY Morrisville where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. As a transfer student, I was welcomed with open arms from the faculty and staff and my peers. It is because of my positive experience as a student and an intern that I am back here today as a college professional.

I am proud to be a part of Morrisville’s vast alumni network and the Admissions team. Morrisville’s diverse atmosphere, hands-on learning environment, and real-world applications allow students to grow individually and professionally, preparing them for a successful future. My story is an example of this and I am happy to share it with anyone and everyone.

As a proponent of continuous learning, I completed my Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration with a focus in Advising and Counseling through Stony Brook University. Since joining admissions in 2015, I have worked with every student population to walk through our doors: freshman, transfer, international, adult learners, veterans, commuters, part-time - you name it!

When I am not in the office or studying, I am working on my home and garden, dancing to live music, and most importantly, spending time with my beautiful family and friends!
